Rental and camping close to Shanghai Disney world
We found out that there is a very nice camping place close to Shanghai Disney world, and we are planning to test it over the weekend shortly. Basically, on a nice day just within walking distance from Disney. All the campers were fixed and of foreign brand and including own terrace with BBQ possibilities. This time for our trip, we rented the RV instead.

Renting an RV from Maxus
The renting of an RV was quite painless. Just to provide information like passport, visa, and local driving license. All the RVs are from a well-known brand in China, and they have a vast service and office network in China. It is possible sometimes to rent-and-drop type of rental agreement. The prices can be a little bit high, about 1600CNY/day, but in my opinion, they are the safest option. Also, they are arranging all kinds of RV trips in China.
Some pictures of the camping area. Small shop and BBQ of whole lamb available.
Example of travel program from Maxus including the driver in Inner Mongolia
The advertisement, as an example, was during the summer of 2021, and the prices and what is included might have changed. This price is per person and includes a local driver. If needed English speaking driver you need to ask for it. There are not many of them, which might also affect the price. During peak season, the RV’s condition might not be the best, but usually, they are not many years old. Remember to include all you need, bed sheets, pots, pans, etc.
Maxus is a nationwide rental company and can be found in the most significant cities
Please notice that we have not tested this campsite, only taken pictures when we rented the motor home for the Nanjing trip
