The emperor gardens

Yuyuan Gardens is a must-see in Shanghai. It is located in the old part of the city, on the west bank of the Huangpu River, not far from the Bund. The entrance is located on Anren street. It is recommended to visit first thing in the morning during the week if possible, as on the weekend it is one of Chinese families' favorite spots for taking a walk. The gardens have all the characteristics of a typical Chinese garden, including lakes, round doors, red painted wooden bridges , houses with pointed roofs, weeping willows, red lanterns, decorations of artificial rocks, red fish, dragons, temples dedicated to Buddha, etc., all in an area equivalent to the size of four football fields. They are from the time of the Ming dynasty, in the sixteenth century, and took two decades to finish. The most visited sites are the two white jade Buddhas, which are located on the second floor and worth $17 million, the hall of Three Wheat Stalks, and the Jade Rock. Included in the entrance fee of 10 yuan or 1 euro, is a tea ceremony and a tasting of any of the 10 different teas offered. I chose the Gingsen to re-energize after the several hours I spent in the gardens.
