China – Flower Blossoms & Peony Festival Tour
April 8th to April 22nd, 2008
 

April 21: Shanghai
We visited a beautiful garden today - the Yu Yuan Garden or as some have called it ‘the garden of peace and comfort’, one of China’s most famous scholar gardens. Close by there are shopping areas in old Shanghai. Yu Yuan Garden has many zig-zag pathways. Built in 1559, Pan Yunduan spent twenty years and all his savings building it to please his parents in their old age.

Then some time along the Bund, where everyone enjoyed the scenery.

In the afternoon visit the Shanghai Museum - a world class museum of Chinese art and culture. The new Shanghai Museum has ten special galleries of bronze, calligraphy, ceramics, furniture, jades, minority art, paintings, sculpture, seal carvings, coins and arts and crafts, together with a special gallery of donated relics and three temporary exhibition halls. It also contains an excellent gift shop with many attractive and fascinating books about Chinese culture and art, available in English.
