Why you'll love this trip
Your general impression of Shanghai by now may be just modern and brand-new. It's not always so especially when you see the Yuyuan Garden and Shuyin Mansion. Dating back to the Ming Dynasty of Chinese history, the Yuyuan Garden was once roughly renovated three decade ago, while Shuyin Mansion which survived the Cultural Revolution is kept dilapidated and privately owned. Explore the Garden and Mansion to find something different from feasting your own eyes on the historical spots.
- Private half-day tour with a dedicated English guide
- Authentic daily life experience by visiting local area
