A QUIET CLASSICAL GARDEN NOR FAR FROM THE BUND Sep 25, 2006
The Yu Gardens,also known as the Yu Yuan garden is a 400 years old classical garden located in the NorthEast part of the Old town of Shangai,not far from the Bund.
It was finished at the end of the 16 th century(Ming dynasty) and built for the rest of the parents of a government officer.
It occupies an area of 20 000 square meters(about 5 acres).Designed to distort distance and space,despite its relative small surface,it features many attractions like pavilions,rockeries,halls,lotus ponds,grottoes..
