Yuyuan Garden stands out as a highlight in this city beaming with extraordinary sights and places you must see. This garden includes all the elements that a typical classical Chinese garden should have; ponds, halls, pavilions cloisters and rockeries. Tranquility, serenity and peacefulness are all states of mind you will experience in this aesthetic location in the middle of the city’s Old Town region. Perhaps pick a quiet spot to sit here and take in the sights, scenery and people around for an unforgettable memory of China.
