We easily spent most of a day wandering throughout this beautiful garden and were rewarded by the peaceful surroundings and friendly locals. Even though packed with people, it is so large it never felt crowded or uncomfortable. A fantastic way to spend a beautiful day--I highly recommend it!

Guyi Garden is located near metro line 11, Nanxiang stop. You can take No. 2 bus across the street from the metro, get off at the next stop. When you return you can take either No. 1 or 2 bus and get off at the metro station which is the last stop. It is a 20 minutes walk if that... More

The Guyi Garden as many people are not aware is one of the oldest gardens in Shanghai.Very beautiful garden, small ponds definitely much calmer & less crowded then Yuyuan Garden. Located 21 Km from city Centre it is on the Metro Line 11 Nanxiang. Next to the Garden entrance there is a restaurant where they serve the best dumplings in... More

Guyi Garden's origins dates back to the Tang Dynasty. This 10 hector enclave in the midst of Shanghai's Nanxiang Town area allows one to catch a glimpse of beauty and enjoy the tranquility of a traditional Chinese Garden.

Enjoyed a few hours here. This is a classic Chinese garden. It i mostly used by local, and has very few non-Chinese people visiting. This park is more lovely than Yuyuan Gardens and is FAR less crowded. If you want to have a real Chinese experience in a lovely calm park, this is the one to go to.

I imagine this garden was tranquil and beautiful in it's heyday. As is the case with most Chinese tourist attractions Guyi Garden has been renovated and restored to the point it has absolutely no link to the past it claims to be a relic of. You can hear the hum of the traffic in most parts of the small garden... More
