From almost anywhere in the city, you occasionally hear the deep horn blasts from ships on the Huangpu River. Xuhui Riverside Park affords a wonderful up-close view of the house-high cargo boats and barges. The wind brushes against your shoulders and colorful kites flutter in the sky. Weekends attract strollers, joggers, climbers, and parkour trainers on exercise mats. The wide, open riverbank walk is a wonderful place to take a deep cleansing breath.
