"Portuguese ornament" Yuyuan Garden & Bazaar Tip by solopes

Yuyuan Garden & Bazaar, Shanghai: 12 reviews and 15 photos

  Shanghai - China
by solopes

Favorite thing: We are marvelled with the beautiful details of the garden!

We look around, carefully, trying to enjoy each artistic combination, each detail, and, suddenly, something pops up out of context. An even more attentive look and... it is a Portuguese flag.

No! It was not part of the decoration!

Just a nice lady decided to support the tested concept that we are a small country with a big people, and no matter where you are, there will always be a Portuguese close to you.

Generally without flags!

Travelling is meeting places... and people, and it's funny to see how two people that would pass by each other in their home town without even a smile, easily find motifs and pleasure for a quick presentation, where they are far away, and discover anything in common.

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