Luckily, I had one and a half days of free time in Shanghai at the end of my very tiring trip! And in a busy city of a few hundred million (feels like it, anyway), its just about impossible to find a quiet place!! But I did!!!! :-) - and here's the proof.
I got up very early, and it was raining, so thankfully the gardens were quiet! Although, after about an hour it was pandemonium when the thousands of tourists started to arrive.
Located in the old town, the Yuyuan gardens are stunning - definately my favourite place! I was able to recharge my batteries before heading to Nanjing Road - the famous shopping strip, which is approx 10km long of shops :-) More on that later!
Have a lovely day - I hope these pictures give you a lovely feeling of tranquility! :-)
