Gardens in Shanghai
Shanghai, situated on the western shore of the Pacific and at the estuary of the Yangtze River, with the famous Huangpu River flowing through it, is the leading harbor of the Far East and a major political, technological. cultural and transportation and telecommunications center of China. As a municipality under the direct jurisdiction of the central government, Shanghai is the largest city of China. It is also a famous historical and cultural city. Thanks to its excellent location, convenient transportation conditions with ease of travel to and from nearby Shanghai hotels, the local economy and culture flourished as early as ancient times, which set the stage for the emergence of classical Chinese gardens that were typical of the private gardens south of the Yangtze River. The Yuyuan Garden is an outstanding representative.
Now. let us take a look at this famous garden - known as an "Urban Mountain Forest" - that is tucked away among a thick cluster of high-rise buildings and amidst the den and traffic of city life.
