Discover one of China’s most beautiful gardens on a 4-hour tour of Shanghai. Go to the imperial Yuyuan Garden, known for its traditional Chinese landscaping. Then, explore the antique Xintiandi district, now one of the city’s most fashionable areas.
What to Expect
Enjoy a half-day tour of contrasts in Shanghai and visit the imperial Yuyuan Garden and the historic Xintiandi neighborhood, now one of the city’s trendiest districts.
Following a pick-up from your city center hotel, travel to Yuyuan Garden, located to the north of the Chenghuang Miao (Town God Temple) area of Shanghai. Built in 1559 by a high official of the Ming Dynasty, the exquisite layout, beautiful scenery, and artistic style of the garden’s architecture give Yuyuan its reputation as “an architectural miracle in the region south of the Yangtse River" and a “mountain and forest in the embrace of the bustling city.”
Move on to Xintiandi, where the antique charm of Shikumen has been gentrified to international levels of chic that evoke Shanghai in the decadent 1920s. The external walls retain their antique designs, tiles, and exteriors of Shanghai’s Shikumen housing. The interiors however, embody the contemporary style of trend-setting bars, cafés, boutiques, and restaurants across the globe.
