Guangfulin was a cultural, political, economic and transportation center in ancient times. Its original surroundings have been preserved, allowing visitors to experience the authentic rural scenery and farming culture at the Guangfulin Cultural Relics Park.

There are also cultural and archaeological exhibition halls as well as commercial hotels, allowing people to enjoy the past and present simultaneously.

The park, where relics of an ancient culture dating back to the Neolithic Age have been unearthed, is a must-visit scenic attraction in the Shanghai Sheshan National Tourist Resort.

Dubbed the "Root of Shanghai", it imitates the city's ancient way of life and offers ample evidence of ancient inhabitants living in Shanghai 5,000 years ago.

Opened in the summer of 2018, the Guangfulin Cultural Relics Park has received around 2.48 million visitors.
