Old Shanghai – 上海老城厢 and Yuyuan Garden – 豫园 in Shanghai, China

A traditional garden surrounded by ancient architecture and souvenir shops at Old Shanghai will transport you to real China.
The Yu garden open from 8:30am to 4:45pm, but there’s more to the place to be enjoyed so make sure to schedule enough time to appreciate it.

You can spend a whole day around discovering new alleys with anything you can imagine, spend some time at a Chinese tea house and walk in the streets feeling like you are in a movie.
There’s also the opportunity to watch a puppet show at the streets and/or take a picture wearing old style Chinese garment after the garden entrance.
My favorite place in Shanghai, definitely not to miss.

Tip:* If you enjoy searching for knick-knackery for bargain prices in tinny shops, getting inside the buildings out of the main street around here can be a dream!
*Shanghai is an extremely safe city but at major tourist points there’s scams being reported so do not engage in activities with strangers or people who pronounce themselves city volunteers and keep an eye at your personal belongings.

Address: 218 An Ren Jie, Huangpu, Shanghai
Address in Chinese: 地址: 中国上海市黄浦区安仁街218号
Subway station: Yuyuan Garden Station – line 10, exit 4
