If you are looking for a beautiful garden, forget it. This place is a shopping area mainly and it is insanely crowded. It is not nice in any way and I would never recommend anyone to go. I went there myself twice, during national holiday...More

Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the
streets that serve as the border to the old city. An
aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts
of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the
ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan
(which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly
