Geocache Description:

Find out the most lucky number in Chinese culture and calculate the coordinates for the cache in Fuxing Park. See the update information!

The cache you’re looking for is located in Fuxing Park, but not at the given coordinates.
One of the several ways to get to the park is:
Metro Line 10, Xintiandi Station, Exit 6, walk the Fuxing Rd heading west, enter the park by the gate at Fuxing Rd./Chongqing Rd.
Fuxing Park is one of our favorite parks in Shanghai. The park itself is beautiful with old plane trees and colorful flower beds. You can watch the people practicing tai chi, singing, dancing, playing their traditional musical instruments, doing calligraphy on the pavement, playing cards and Chinese chess, fly their kites, practice with the Chinese diabolo and more.

The park is opened to the public:
April – June:                      5am - 6pm
July – September:            5am – 8pm
October – March:            6am – 6pm
To access the cache you first have to find out the most lucky (one-digit) number in Chinese culture.
The following numbers are numerals in a numeral system based on the lucky number.
Find the decimal representation of these numerals and just add the degree symbols and the decimal marks.
N 13700225
E 56207120
The cache container is a glass bottle with a plastic lid. 5.5 cm dia. x 7 cm
It’s big enough to hold some small geocoins, travel bugs and trade items. Please trade fair or don’t trade! Please bring your own pen!

Update 20.04.2014
The original cache is obviously gone. The first hiding place, a cavity in the stone wall, is filled with concrete now. The new hiding place is around 2 meters south of the given coordinates.
Many thanks to Haima for all his efforts to find the place and provide and hide the new cache box.

Update 17.05.2015
Thanks to wudellhudel for adopting out this cache. Hope to keep it alive a long time.

Beware the China offset that comes and goes. The coordinates on your phone and map will not always lead you to the right destination. A genuine GPS will always work.
