Shanghai is well known for its shopping, eating, sightseeing and general all-round craziness. So where can you go for a bit of quiet reflection in this busy and exciting city?Yuyuan Garden
The garden of ‘peace and comfort’ is a green oasis right in the center of the Old Town. Considered one of China’s finest and best-preserved gardens, Yuyuan features Ming-era pavilions, rockeries, ponds and quaint, zig-zag bridges.It’s a small space—only 5 acres (2 hectares) and on some days you might find yourself jostling for position with several other serenity seekers but somehow the garden still manages to maintain an air of quiet composure.
