The Yuyuan Gardens date back to 1559 to the Ming Dynasty, and
are the best example of Chinese classical gardens in Shanghai. The
relatively small gardens are laid out in an intricate design with
pavilions, rockeries, ponds and a traditional theatre arranged in
an ornate maze. The gardens are on Yuyuan Street in downtown
Shanghai and can be reached via the Town God Temple Market, a
warren of shops and stalls that is becoming increasingly popular as
a tourist bazaar.
