Thames Town and Sheshan Countryside

About the Event

Thames Town is a replica of a classic British town in the outskirts of Shanghai. Chinese people sometimes say, “the way to live best is to eat Chinese food and live in a British house.” We will find out whether that is true.

We will meet at Hengshan Road metro station and take a van to Sheshan. (For those bringing their own bike, there will also be transportation for the bikes.) Upon arrival, we will start our ride from the base of Sheshan Mountain, the only mountain range in Shanghai. The area is perfect for cycling with much greenery and very well-paved roads. We will proceed to bike around the Moon Lake Sculpture Park by the Phoenix Hill and East Sheshan. Then we will continue our ride to Thames Town and bike along the picturesque lake and on the cobblestone streets with Victorian, Georgian and Tudor style houses while playing a game of Spot-the-Statue-of-famous-Brits.

For an authentic English experience, we will of course have fish and chips for lunch.

In the afternoon, we will continue to ride to Tianma Hill for a hike. It is not known to many that in Shanghai there is a leaning tower. If a comparison were to be made based on the age and tilt, the Shanghai leaning tower exceeds the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

There are different paths to get to the top of the hill where we may have scenic views on a clear day. Walking among the bamboo forest, we will be refreshed with nature.

After the hike, we will take the van back to Hengshan Road metro station.
