Chongming is one of of Shanghai’s Municipalities which consists of three islands. From largest to smallest they are; Chongming, Changxing and Hengsha. These alluvial islands are located where the Yangtze River finally reaches the sea and drops its silt to form these low-lying and fertile islands.
Shanghai’s Chongming Island is the third largest in China, and with 24% of it covered with forest, Chongming district enjoys a reputation as being an accessible seaside garden in the north of Shanghai. These ecological islands offer city-dwellers a pleasant weekend away, with winding roads, calm lakes, wetlands, quiet village paths and delicious local food.
