  • Yu Garden

    Yuyuan Garden

    Also known as Yu Garden, Yuyuan Garden is the only fully restored classical Chinese garden in Shanghai. An oasis of peace within the bustling city, the garden incorporates elements of Feng Shui and perfectly demonstrates the sophisticated art of combining several different elements to create a world in miniature. With its collection of carefully selected and manicured trees, shrubs, lotus ponds, bridges and winding paths it is no wonder this beautiful garden is so popular with visitors and locals alike. Why not visit the garden as part of our full day Jade Buddha, Old Town, Yu Garden, Shanghai Museum and Bund tour.

  • The Bund

Stroll past buildings which housed great foreign enterprise during the city's riotous heyday including the former British and Russian Consulates, former Jardine Matheson Company, the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank and the Shanghai Club.
