Also known as “dogging” (or is that a term for sex in a public place in general?), bumping uglies in your car has been a favorite pasttime of pimply teens and enthusiastic lovers since the dawn of the automobile. Apparently that trend has arrived with full force in China, where it is known as “car quaking” (车震, chēzhèn). Thanks to this post circulating on the Chinese internet, we now have a map of the best places in Shanghai to grab a park ‘n’ pet.
For those of your lucky/crazy enough to have a car, here’s a rundown of the recommended spots:
Riverside City (新江湾城)
Zhengyue Lu near Zhayin Lu (政悦路 ,近闸殷路)
Better known as the car quake “holy land”, this big urban green space is excellent for parking, but its reputation is too big now and there are more security patrols.
Baoxing Funeral Home (宝兴殡仪馆旁)
Jingxiang Lu, near Xi Baoxing Lu (景祥路, 近西宝兴路)
People hate dead people and crematoriums at night, right? Deserted after dark, perfect for parking.
Henan South Rd (河南南路旁)
Songxui Jie , near Henan Nan Lu (松雪街, 近河南南路)
A tasteful, quiet part of the city, for the sophisticated quaker. Downsides: too central, too many people!
Guohua Rd (国货路)
Guohua Lu near Zhongshan Nan Lu (国货, 近中山南路)
Enjoy the view of Nanpu bridge at night, but beware the wandering migrant worker!
Ten-Thousand Bamboo Park / Wanzhu Yuan (万竹园)
Nenjiang Lu, near the Huangpu River (嫩江路到底靠近黄埔江了)
This historical park will provide you an ancient atmosphere to get your groove going. Only problem is, people say it feels haunted!
Gucun Park (顾村公园)
No. 4788 Hu Tai Road, 沪太路4788号
It’s green, it’s quiet, it’s big, and you can drive into it! But the surrounding high rises probably guarantee there will be security.
Riverside Forrest Park’s parking lot (滨江森林公园停车场)
Suitang Gong Lu, near Gongyuan Lu ( 随塘公路靠近公园路)
It’s far FAR away, but totally deserted both day and night. Only for the most devoted quakers.
Dishui Lake (滴水湖)
A return to nature! It’s a lake. Lots of space, no people. Give it a try, quakers! It’s far, but hey, you have a car!
