Yuyuan Garden Shanghai Shanghai Region
Located in the Old City of Shanghai, The Yuyuan garden is a haven of peace in this economic capital. The Yuyuan Bazaar is frequently visited by the locals and the tourists yet the garden remains very significant.

The History of Yuyuan Garden

The Yu garden is constructed by a young official in Ming dynasty as a comfort for his father. It was later destroyed by bombardments during the Opium War. The Underground Organization of Qing dynasty named "Small Knives" established its headquarters here after the garden was restored, which was disintegrated by French troops in reprisal for attacks against the French concession. Today, most of the buildings can date back to the last dynasty of the Chinese, The Qing Dynasty.

The Yuyuan Garden  

The Yuyuan garden is one of the finest in Shanghai and relatively peaceful. It is the ideal place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city and make a pleasant stroll. Like other typical Chinese garden, Yu garden consists of small lakes, pavilions, bridges and rocky hills. Separated by walls, the garden gives the impression of hugeness.

Access the garden through the bridge with nine turns and the Pavilion at the center which houses the Pavilion of the Hu Xing Ting.

The Chenghuangmiao Bazaar

The garden is surrounded by a set of buildings with fanciful roofs recalling traditional Chinese architecture. Through damage and restorations, the district still retains its original charm. The many small shops of the Bazaar have attracted numerous tourists.

A Paradise for Gourmets 

The Chenghuangmiao Bazaar is home to many renowned restaurants and Shanghai specialties. At the time of the meal, search for the best dishes. Cross the bridge, enjoy the best steamed buns of Shanghai. As one of the most popular brands of the garden, the restaurant is not broad enough to receive so many guests. You can also try Laofandian or Lubolang.

City God Temple

The Chenghuangmiao Bazaar originated from the Chinese name of this temple. The Chenghuangmiao temple or City God Temple, is in honor of General Huoguang. Although it is not original, some parts are worth visiting.
