Yuyuan is a bustling marketplace set in an old Chinese neighborhood with traditional architecture and shops selling everything from dumplings to kitsch. A great place for people-watching and picking up Chinese souvenirs, and close to the nearby Yuyuan Gardens.

Yuyuan is a great way to know shanghai. You can try out good dumplings, buy chinese snacks, take photos in retro shanghai costume or just sit in Starbucks and admire the architecture. You can also go shop around at small shops outside the main building....More

I give the bazaar itself only three stars being very crowded and being an example of crass commercialism. Starbucks is there. What makes the visit worthwhile is the garden. Pay the extra money for garden entry and stroll among the beautiful ponds and pavilions in...More

This is Disney meets Chinatown. People say this place is busy in the weekend. However I went early on Sunday morning at 9am and it was ok then. It did get busier by midday. No busier than Disneyland on a public holiday LOL. There’s some...More

The Yuyuan bazaar is extremely touristy. Although, it is right next to the Gardens so it is easy to check out if you are going to the gardens. I did not feel the need to buy anything but seeing the architecture was nice. IF you...More

Yu Garden Bazaar is definitely worth a visit. My rules for the visit--some learned the hard way:) 1) Don't go on weekends. It is a tourist spot for Chinese as well and on weekends will be PACKED. Go on week nights. 2) Check your change....More

A very busy, noisy overcrowded bazaar but the atmosphere was electric. Plenty of street food, shops and entertainment. Look up and take in the architecture but watch your pockets and bags you'll get jostled all the way.

The place was crowded on a weekday early evening. There are many shops selling tourist ware, food and beverages. To explore the whole area, you'd need a good 2 hours at least. Food-wise, buy small sizes for a taster first. Shopping-wise, general rule of thumb...More

In this place and around it there are hundreds of small shops where you can buy souvenirs and trinkets. Most fun part for me here was bargaining for prices. Usually you can bargain down to 30-40% of initial asking price, but be aware that some...More

Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the
streets that serve as the border to the old city. An
aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts
of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the
ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan
(which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly
referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists
every day, but wandering the streets around the
