  • 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
  • Yu garden is the most beautiful place that you can visit in Shanghai. It is located at north east of Old City of Shanghai, where it is also close to City God Temple. This place has so many tourists and is a crowded place since it is close to Yu Garden Bazaar. So, consider 3-4 hours for visiting this place.
