Yu Garden (Chinese: 豫园 Yù Yuán) was a private garden of the Pan family in the Ming Dynasty.

It was the largest and most prestigious property in Shanghai at that time.

The garden has a very unique design.

Delicate pavilions, zigzag bridges, and sculpted rockeries perfectly blend in with the community.

For those looking for a glimpse into ancient China, as reflected in movies and books, this is the place to be.

One of the must-try local food is the small steamed buns at Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant.

It is one of the most historical and famous dumplings shops.

From twenty-six years of the Qing dynasty in 1900 AD, Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant still maintains its highest production standards: with selected high-quality flour, pork & fresh ingredients, no added artificial colors, dishes made by Shanghai's famous chef daily.

Nan Xiang’s soup dumplings are the most popular dish, it made fresh by cooks who tend a seemingly endless array of steamers.

After visiting the classic and historical Yu Garden, come here and have some fantastic steamed bun.
