Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Crowne Plaza Lake Malaren. It is a super nice hotel in the fast developing northern suburb Baoshan. It is about a 30 minutes drive from the city center and actually almost the same when going by metro line 7. The station, Meilan Lake, is just 10 minutes walk from the hotel.

The environment around the hotel is beautiful as it is adjacent to the Lake Malaren Golf Club. This golf course consists of 2 Jack Nicklaus PGA accredited 18-hole courses.

Both the hotel and the golf course are part of the greater Lake Meilan Luodian New North Town development.

In a coming post I will write more in detail about Luodian Town, or the Scandinavian town, a small town with architecture inspired by Sigtuna in Sweden.
