Being centrally located in the city does leave fewer options for jogging routes around The Portman Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai, but some do exist. If you like to run or walk early in the morning, you’ll have the streets practically to yourself in terms of traffic. But you might be surprised by how much activity goes on at such an early hour. Nearby Jing’an Park is within walking distance and offers a greener option. If you’re in it for distance, head south of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel and into the popular French Concession neighborhood for a lovely jog under plenty of quaint trees and roadways. Evening running is not recommended due to Shanghai’s traffic (and the aggressive drivers), visibility hazards and, at times, air quality.
