Paradise - - Traveller -

Laid out in the 19th cen­tury, Fux­ing Park (516 Fux­ing Cen­tral Road, Huangpu) has shady trel­lised walk­ways, a rose gar­den and a spa­cious cen­tral lawn pop­u­lar with re­lax­ing fam­i­lies.

An hour’s train ride west of Shang­hai brings you to Suzhou (vis­itsz.com), a canal-bound city fa­mous for its many clas­si­cal Chi­nese gar­dens such as the 16th-cen­tury Gar­den of the Hum­ble Ad­min­is­tra­tor and com­pact Mas­ter of the Nets Gar­den, laid out in 1140.

Huangzhou (go­tohz.com) is renowned in China – and favoured by hon­ey­moon­ers – for its beau­ti­ful lakeshore set­ting and sur­round­ing tea plan­ta­tions, and is just a 90-minute train ride away.
