Very touristic and busy but still very beautiful garden with nice small wooden/stone buildings. Entrance was only 30rmb. I walked around for 45min to see the complete garden. It was a bit difficult to find the entrance at first.

The Yu garden is located near the Bund and if you have spare time, you must go visit this place. It is quite beautiful and historic and a nice place to relax and spend a nice morning/evening.

If you go in summer go very early to beat the crowds. Very peaceful place in the middle of a bustling city. Amazing when you think how old it is and that it was one man’s private garden. Be prepared for the hustle & bustle...More
