These gardens are located in the Old City and include a nine cornered bridge, mid Lake Pavilion and other Chinese style buildings.

This was actually a quaint and interesting place to visit with its ornate buildings, alleyways packed with small shops and "teahouses" over water.

It is definitely a favourite haunt of the local and Chinese tourists. It was packed with people eating at dumpling restaurants scattered or shopping throughout the complex!! This is also the place to buy shushan stone carvings. Don’t forget to look at the basement area under the main buildings beyond the walkway.

There are also some interesting shops across from the entrance to the gardens.

Address: 218 Anren Street, Old City
Directions: Walk south along The Bund then swing a right at Jinling Dong Lu. We certainly did!!Busline: No. 64, No. 24, No. 11, No. 926
