Guyi Garden is located near metro line 11, Nanxiang stop. You can take No. 2 bus across the street from the metro, get off at the next stop. When you return you can take either No. 1 or 2 bus and get off at the metro station which is the last stop. It is a 20 minutes walk if that is your preference. The garden is one of the best examples of a Chinese Garden. It is less crowded than the one in Shanghai, the Yu Yuan Garden. The only thing I did not like is the loud singing of amateur Chinese opera singers. They bring their own audio equipment and sing at the top of their lungs. I enjoyed an exhibition of viewing stone in one of the pavilions. The Shanghai hsiaolongbao (meatball in a bun or little bun) originated in Nanxiang. In the immediate neighborhood of Guyi are dotted with restaurants serving hsiaolongbao. The metro ride is about 30 minutes or so from the center of Shanghai. Admission is 12RMB and 10RMB for seniors (bring your passport as proof of your age). Recommended length of visit depends on your interest in the art of Chinese gardens, 1 hour to 3 hours.
