Yu Gardens Shanghai, Tea & The Long Bar | China Vlog_04
Yu Garden, aka Yuyuan Garden, Yu Yuan in Chinese, are classical gardens in Shanghai, China.  Yu Garden was first built in 1559 during the Ming Dynasty by Pan Yunduan for his father,  the minister Pan En. The garden was the largest and most prestigious  in Shanghai. A centerpiece is the Exquisite Jade Rock a porous 3.3-m, 5-ton boulder. Rumours say it comes from the Huangpu River after the boat carrying it had sunk.
Huxinting Tea House is also nearby considered to have some of the finest tea in china. Best time to visit is on Mondays when they have traditional chinese music with woodwind and string instruments.
The Long Bar, facing The Bund has been restored to its former glory to the 1911 Shanghai Club past. Its located in Shanghai hotel’s Waldorf Astoria Club heritage building. It used to be the longest bar in the far east stretching 34 meters / 110ft of raw mahogany.
The bund is an amazing water front in Shanghai where you can view the new buildings on the other side of the river. Also the old buildings built in the early 1900s, which are on the bund side.
