wild weekends at Dianshan lake shanghai family outings

This two day weekend is designed to reconnect with planet and people. You arrive either Friday evening or Saturday morning in a beautiful village South of Dianshan Lake, Shanghai’s largest freshwater reservoir, which is also a protected biosphere. Turn off your mobile phone for 48 hours, unwind and savor the here and now.

We take you on guided kayak and bike tours, show you the old town of Jinze, and ignite your interest in nature walks through the local wetland forests, evening strolls to spot fire flies or mid night star gazing. Enjoy the rich taste of locally grown organic food freshly prepared for you or bring your own delicacies for an evening BBQ.

Next Wild Weekend dates: 29-31 March, 26-28 April, 10-12 May

Location: Shanghai, Dianshan Lake @ The Parrot Tree
