Yu Garden, Shanghai | China Top Attractions

Yu Garden

Yu Garden

There is no shortage of gardens around China, and Shanghai is home to one of the must-see gardens—the Yu Garden or Yuyuan Garden.

Why?

For one, it has been around for 400 years as it was built during the Ming Dynasty. This alone is enough for anyone to want to see what a garden looked like during China's last imperial dynasty. 

For another, its layout and scenery are nothing short of exquisite. It also features an artistic garden architecture.

Typical of most gardens in China, Yu Garden has plenty of features that decorate an area of 2 hectares. Some of these are the Relaxation Stone Boat, Jingguan Tower, Ginkgo Tree, Yule Pavilion, and the Jade Water Corridor.

Six of the garden's general areas follow the Suzhou style and are separated by "dragon walls", complete with a dragon's head at each end. These are the Sansui Hall, Wanhua Chamber, Dianchun Hall, Huijing Hall, Yuhua Hall, and the Inner Garden, which was initially laid out in 1709 and recreated in 1956.

While you're at the Yu Garden, make sure to visit the Yuyuan Bazaar for a bit of shopping. You'll find tea houses here as well.
