Yu Garden / Yuyuan Garden @ Shanghai, China

Yu Garden or Garden of Happiness is a extensive chinese garden located in the central of Shanghai. The layout of Yu Yuan, which contains several gardens-within-gardens, can make strolling here a bit confusing, but if you stick to a general clockwise path from the main entrance, you should get around most of the estate and arrive eventually at the Inner Garden and final exit. Occupying just 2 hectares (5 acres), it appears quite expansive, with room for 30 pavilions.
