The Lantern Festival at Yu Gardens is still worth seeing, even though the decorations are scaled down a bit. Note the times of a 10 minute show, when things get a bit crowded.

This is by far my favorite place on earth. Its so cozy and I absolutely adore all the beautiful koi and the live music. Plenty of shops and places to eat. Walk in and enjoy the sights and sounds. In the morning its not as crowded and at night everything is lit up. I miss this place.

A lovely history of how this garden was built by a man for his parents to enjoy in their old age. Always nice to experience history and designs and architecture. Amazing what they had achieved in those olden days.

Located behind novelty shops in Shanghai, this garden is hundreds of years old, one of the oldest parts of the city. You'll find small traditional buildings standing above the water, connected by bridges and walkways, plants and flowers float in the water and every part of the garden looks like a work of art. You'll find rocks used to decorate the garden that have been transported hundreds of miles and small sculptures of episodes from Chinese history. You'll also find a shop filled with classic Chinese items such as Terracotta soldiers and in the distance you can see Shanghai tower, the tallest building in the country. Though not a very big garden, it is a nice way to spend time to get a break from the modern day busy city life.
