Yuyuan Garden, China Shanghai

Yuyuan Garden is Originally designed in the sixteenth century, Yu Yuan is a garden within a garden. Divided into two parts, the outer garden contains pavilions, rock gardens, and ponds and leads to the inner garden, which is a smaller version of the outer garden. This small park is located in the heart of Shanghai's old Chinese quarter and links to Yuyuan Market. Built in 1559, in the Suzhou style by a high official in honor of his father, the garden has maintained its classic beauty over the centuries.

The Pavilion of Spring in the northeast section of the park is famous for being the headquarters of the anti-imperialist "Little Sword Society", who in 1853 led an uprising against Qing rule and occupied Shanghai for 17 months. Weapons, coins and other objects used by the society are now housed in an exhibition hall.

Yuyuan Garden's Huxin Ting teahouse is very popular and numerous stalls sell delicious Chinese snacks and desserts.
