holiday overview

Highlights / General details

Discover the beauty and richness of China’s history and culture as you explore these landmarks that capture the essence of classical China.

Yuyuan Garden was initially a private garden built in 1559 of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). Due to the devastation by war in the later times, it was renewed in 1956 and finally opened to public in 1961. The present garden covers an area of over 30 mu (0.74 acres), with the style of the Ming and Qing (1644 - 1911) Dynasties. The garden gives prominence to quietness and elegance. The large rockwork, Yulinglong Stone Peak, Jiuquqiao Bridge, Huxinting Pavilion and Lotus Pool are the most distinctive scenery there. In addition, the paintings, sculptures, furniture, Chinaware and other valuable cultural relics displayed in the garden are also worth experiencing.

In the western part of Shanghai lies the Jade Buddha Temple. Originally built in 1882, the temple as seen today was built in 1928. The temple received its name from the two jade statues of the Buddha that it houses.

Begin your tour at Yuyuan Garden, built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD). Enjoy a respite from bustling city life as you stroll through the garden, admiring the pavilions, ponds and dragon-lined walls. Yuyuan Garden translates to the 'Garden of Contentment' in English, and you will experience tranquility as you explore this 400-year-old classical Chinese garden.

Visit the Jade Buddha Temple to see the intricately carved jade Buddhas and ancient paintings. Enjoy lunch at a local Chinese restaurant.

Next, stop by the Chenghuangmiao Temple – the 'Temple of the Town Deity'. Back in ancient China, every city had its own temple to worship its local deity, who was believed to protect the townspeople.

Finish your day shopping for mementos, vintage trinkets and gifts at Dongtailu Antique Market, Shanghai’s only remaining flea market. Keep your eyes out for revolution-era porcelain statues, Chinese dishes, vases and old cameras. With 125 stalls to browse, the market offers a not-to-be-missed experience.

End the tour and transfer you to the hotel.
