Adjacent to “Old Shanghai” area we visited Yu Garden and the surrounding Bazaar. Admission to the gardens, which are quite expansive was 40 Yuan each. Definitely a tourist destination within Shanghai, but something to see, if nothing more for the relative peace and serenity contrasting the general hustle and bustle of Shanghai, currently undergoing massive construction efforts in preparation for Expo 2010.

Southwestern corner of the Bazaar surrounding Yu Garden. Traditional Chinese architecture and hawking of typical tourist goods galore.
