Interesting exposé about a man who protected the right of Christians to practice their religion, and for a time was imprisoned for it, by an official whose job he ultimately obtained.

Xu is a famous scientist from the 1600s and in this quiet park there is his tomb and also a little museum. No ticket is required and there are many residents and few tourists.

A quiet, beautifully restored park and tomb of a Chinese scientist from the 1600s. (Oddly enough it is across the street from a modern-day observatory.) This is an oasis inside the hustle and bustle of the city around it. There is a nice walking path that leads around the park. Many of the plaques have English translations.

Staying in Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
