Yu Yuan Garden, Shanghai or as some have called it ‘the garden of peace and comfort’, is one of China’s most famous scholar gardens. Yu Yuan Garden with it's zig zag pathway. Built in 1559, a beautiful garden and as you can see, more in bloom because of the warmer temperatures.

Pan Yunduan spent twenty years and all his savings building it to please his parents in their old age. This is a garden that you have to make time for..and look up at the rooflines, where you will see animals – an elephant, perhaps some little squirrel like creatures, or people. Fascinating is what I would describe this garden as, and one not to be missed! I sure hope his parents were happy.
