  • Beautiful classical Chinese garden, at the old city of Shanghai was built in sixteen centuries by Ming Dynasty. It was spread on two hector of land & had lot of pavilions, halls, stages, ponds, arch bridges & stone works. Big white dragon walls had big greyish black dragons on the top. A huge porous jade stone weighing five tons was on display. Beautiful Koi carps were in the ponds. A lot of tourists were enjoying the classical Chinese garden & were busy taking pictures. A must visit place while at Shanghai.
  • Yu Yuan garden is a tourist spot in Shanghai. It allows you to see the old style buildings that you might imagine China to look like. It has lots of ornate rooftops, little shops selling knick knacks and it is a nice photo spot. Night time is better
