Yes it is a challenge to get there (all those selfie sticks blocking the zig zag bridge) and probably the most expensive cup of tea you’re likely to have. But once you’re upstairs looking out across the crowds and the water, it’s lovely. Nice to...More

The main attraction is that it is over two hundred years old which defies belief. It has obviously been renovated many times and is in reality a very expensive café (A cup of tea is 98 RMB). It is on the second floor of the...More

Cross the Jiuqu Bridge to a pavilion in the middle of a lake just outside the entrance to Yu Gardens. The Mid-Lake Pavilion Teahouse has a sign that says that it’s over 200 years old, which means you can have the privilege of having tea...More
