Take the 11 metro, Nanxiang stop and go up the escalator to exit. Cross over bridge to get to #2 bus. 1st stop is just before entrance. The restaurant for the area origin dumplings is just past the entrance and we ordered #1 & #2 (as recommending in another review about the picture less menu) pork and crab dumplings that... More

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!

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. Guyi was razed during the Japanese occupation of China. The buildings and structure has been restored to its original designs as much... More

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
