Best Things to Do in Shanghai in September

Enjoy the Mid-Autumn Festival

The French ConcessionThe French Concession

The Mid-Autumn Festival is the second biggest traditional Chinese festival. It usually falls in September though occasionally the public holiday is in early October. Shanghai gets little rain in the fall, so take advantage of the dry warm weather in September to see traditional outdoor sites and see the festivities in the shopping streets and city parks.

Go for an outing to Zhujiajiao Water Town

Take a boat and see the scenery, dine in a restaurant, and see the peach orchards. Some of the buildings date to the Qing Dynasty era (1644-1912) or the early 1900s. See more about Zhujiajiao Water Town.

Visit Fuxing Park

Fuxing Park is in the French Concession area. See the mix of French and Chinese gardens and watch the people exercising or out for an outing. It isn't a big park, but it is a quiet one near the sights near the old International Settlement Quarter. You can go there to relax and see the city life.
