As the orange high-temperature alerts — the second highest level after red — keep on coming in Shanghai these days, the city's Sheshan National Tourist Resort offers an enticing destination for those keen to escape the heat waves through the fun and frolics of watersports and a host of other cool activities.

The annual Sheshan Summer Carnival formally starts on Friday, and will last to the end of August. During the two-month summer gala, dozens of activities, programs and events with different themes — such as family, fashion, fun, fads and food — will be staged. They will allow visitors to enjoy a "crazy cool summer", according to carnival organizers.

The organizers said activities and programs that promote interaction between parents and kids to improve family relationship will be the highlight this year.

Parents and children can enjoy a water play summer camp at the Playa Maya Water Park, renowned for its top aquatic facilities. The water park's famous rides, including the super horn, a free-fall water drop, a big octopus slide, a water turbo drop ride, and the Magic Water Town, help create an oasis of cool fun.

A summer camp focusing on family education will be held at Shanghai Youngster Sheshan Activities Base. The program aims to boost family happiness levels and family relations through a variety of parent-child outdoor activities, and to promote traditional culture.

In addition, Gleetour Hotel Shanghai will be open this summer, which provides a new choice for family outings.
