Yuyuan Garden

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Yuyuan Garden is a traditional Chinese park full with beautiful pavilions, bridges, miniature lakes and rock formations. This tiny park is situated in the heart of Shanghai's old Chinese quarter and links to Yuyuan Market. Constructed in 1559, in the Suzhou style by a high officer in tribute of his father, the garden has maintained its classic beauty over the centuries. The Pavilion of Spring in the northeast section of the park is popular for being the headquarters of the anti-imperialist. Its Huxin Ting teahouse is very famous and several stalls sell tasty Chinese snacks and desserts.
It located in Anren Jie, Shanghai. Yu in Chinese means satisfying and pleasing, and this garden was particularly built for Pan's parents as a place for them to take pleasure in a tranquil and happy time in their old age. In the 400 years of its existence, Yuyuan Garden had undergone several changes.
This garden occupies an area of twenty thousand square meters, about five acres. Though, the small size is not a representative of the attractions of the garden. The halls, pavilions, ponds, rockeries and cloisters all have exclusive characteristics. There are six main scenic areas in the garden that include Wanhua Chamber, Sansui Hall, Huijing Hall, Dianchun Hall, Yuhua Hall and the Inner Garden. Each region features many scenic spots within its borders.
