The 400-year-old Yu Yuan Gardens were built in the Ming Dynasty during the reign of Emperor Jia Jin. Recognized as a significant national heritage site, the Gardens are a remarkable representation of a southern Chinese-style garden. Visitor highlights include the Jade Exquisiteone of the three most famous jade stones in East China. A shopping bazaar has developed around the attraction. Loud, bustling and full of character, tourists can brush up on their bargaining skills as they shop for souvenirs and gifts.
Yu gardens an experience of China shopping you will never forget! If you like to bargain with price this is the place! There are a lot of individuals selling outside the stores, stick to the stores when buying and watch as they do have counterfeit items throughout. One great place is the Funghui pearl store, they provide high quality pearls and again you can bargain the price. They count on their reputation so what you see is authentic. Reappraisal of their pearls in the US showed a very good quality and a very good deal. I have been 2x in Shanghai and I plan to visit again if I return to the city.
Visits in July 2006 & 2007
These gardens are beutiful. They are tranquil and very picturesque! The price to enter the garden is quite reasonable and definately worth it! There are many nice shops outside the gardens which have nice traditional souvinirs! We spent a few hours in gardens and another day we came bach to look around the nice shops! It is a lovely intresting traditional place to visit and a mist see when traveling to Shanghai!!

This place is a must see for visitors to the city of Shanghai. You could easily get lost in here cause it feels like a maze sometimes. It cost 30rmb and don't forget to take your camera. Also see the Tea house and do your tourist shopping here at the Yu garden bazaars instead of the overrated Nanjing road. Its quite rocky so wear good shoes and no high heels. I spent 2 hrs exploring the place and loved it, highly reccomended.
The Yu Garden is nice but if you are spending a bit of time in Shanghai it's better to go see a few gardens in Suzhou, only about an hour away from the city. The gardens there are much more famous and the town itself is very cute and a nice get away!Bring some money for pearl shopping, but be ready to bargin like crazy if you are a Westerner. (advice: cut the price they give you in half, that is all you should pay after all is said and done!) It is easy to catch a train, and a nice way to see a little bit of country side.
I loved these gardens. Even though they are quite small, it's a convenient downtown location, so it's easy to get to if you have a short stay here. I'm really into rocks, and so the rocks here were really interesting, although not put together so well sometimes. Unfortunately, it was pouring rain when I went (Sept) so it was a pretty quick walk through.
Yi Yuan Gardens...
This place should be visited on a beautiful spring morning. Plan to spend half a day or more there.... If you ask me what do you have there? Well... Gorgeous greenery all over... ponds with fishes chasing around... carvings which scream Ethnic Chinese... Beautiful spots to sit, relax, breath in fresh air and perhaps read or gaze into your beloved's eyes!
And for shop-till-you-drop tourists, this garden is situated in the heart of a shopping area... So... one hand.. two birds, huh?
