Full description
Discover Yuyuan Garden, the only fully restored classical Chinese garden in Shanghai which was inaugurated in the Ming dynasty and has a total area of 20,000 square meters. Marvel at how this magical place perfectly demonstrates the sophisticated art of combining several different elements to create a world in miniature - ingeniously mingling pavilions and corridors, small hills, and carefully selected and well-placed rocks, lotus ponds, bridges, winding paths, and trees and shrubs.

Wander through the corridors and archways, stop to gaze at the famed Exquisite Jade Rock – a 5-ton, porous, beautifully-shaped, spiky rock – or climb to the top of the Great Rockery that was built with thousands of tons of stone and has a height of 14 meters.
