This was my 12th temple in China and i should say that it wasn't so exciting. The place still appears as a unique spot but it's rather the same as any other temple

This is a small little oasis in the city, the best part was the Tea service, we must have tried ten different teas, learning about each one, their medicinal properties, and the ritual of making , serving and enjoying the different teas

They all seem to be very similar and this was our third to visit. Make sure you don't step on the thresholds or the centre paving stones.

When you visit the Temple make sure you join in with the tea tasting and ceremony. The experience of learning about the different teas was great and having a taste of them all was fantastic.

Although limited by time here it was quite peaceful and an enjoyable stroll around looking at various scupltures and rock formations. The garden would be best seen in spring though.

This place is surprisingly interesting. Not as commercial as other temples I have visited and located in a residential area. It has a good selection of caligrapghy, pottery and other artifacts, with a very reasonable entry fee, 15 kuai from memory. You can do a...More

The Confucian Temple was one of my favourite places in Shanghai! Why? It was nearly empty when there and is off a "normal" suburban street. We could explore and learn the history and meaning of the temple at our own pace. There is also an...More

Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the
streets that serve as the border to the old city. An
aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts
of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the
ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan
(which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly
referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists
