Yuyuan Garden in Shanghai, China

If you are looking for something that will remind you that Shanghai actually is a chinese city (and not another version of New York), then you should take a trip to Yuyuan Garden. It’s a small, extensive chinese garden located not far away from the Bund, in the north- east of the Old City of Shanghai.

Built in the Ming Dynasty, Yuyuan is equipped with halls, gardens, pavillions, ponds and towers. It has suffered damage many times over the years, but after being repared it was opened to the public in 1961 and is now a popular tourist destination, and has also been declared a national monument.

Definitely something you wanna see when visiting Shanghai!

How to get there: if you walk from the Bund it will only take about 10 minutes, but the gardens is easier to get to by metro. The metro stop is called Yuyuan Garden (line 10).
