Strictly speaking, residents and tourists trapped in Shanghai
during the hotter months are more or less limited to nearby Jinshan City Beach if they are looking to beat the heat by gaining access to nearby sand and surf. Jinshan is no tropical paradise, but it is a decidedly pleasant diversion (as it is of the city’s biggest seafood market, an amusement park and rides, annual kite flying competitions, volleyball tournaments, and nearly 6,000 feet of beachfront promenade). That said, Jinshan is hardly sufficient to serve the entire population of China’s
largest city when the temperature starts to rise. The following are two alternatives for sun worshipers willing to go a little further afield in search of rest and recuperation.
