The Ultimate Guide For Mid-autumn In Shanghai

The 3-day Mid-autumn Festival Holiday is only four days away. If you don’t have any travel plans, here’s a list of the best ways to have yourself a fancy holiday close to home.



Best Picture Spots


Columbia Country Club


The old Columbia Country Club has been turned into a favorite selfie spot. The swimming pool, the Baroque style architecture and fancy exhibitions will make your friends think that you’re traveling around Mediterranean. But make sure you time it to avoid the “people mountain people sea”.


Address: No 1262, West Yan’an Road




Kikyo Space


The new art space has covered over 1,000 square meters with more than 20 themed rooms for visitors to take photos. You’d better bring enough costumes with you!


Address: No 140, Tian Lin Road


Soho Fuxing Plaza


The Soho Fuxing Plaza gives out a sense of science and technology, which makes you a secret agent in Mission Impossible. Some hot Korean idols have been here for photo shoots, so don’t wait too long.


Address: No 388, Ma Dang Road
