Getting into the Yuyuan Gardens can be a bit confusing as you have to go through the bazaar to get there. If you follow the masses you can probably find it. The bazaar is ok, but it was really crowded when I went. Beware of people trying to get money from you to get into the gardens. I was naive in thinking he actually wanted to know where I was from and then he asked me for money to get into the gardens. Strangely enough there is a Dairy Queen inside the Bazaar. As much as I like DQ, I was less than thrilled that it was in the beautiful architecture.

The gardens themselves are beautiful and peaceful. If I had time I would have stayed there longer.
