Dino Beach

Swimming in West Shanghai

Way down south in Minhang district, and also known as the Shanghai Tropical Storm Water Park, this popular summer place has a beach, a wave pool, water slides and tube hire to beat the Shanghai summer heat, and it keeps going late. But it’s absolutely heaving at weekends. To get here, take metro line 1 to Xinzhuang, or catch a cab from Qibao. Midweek and early bird discounts are on offer.
