Giardini Yuyuan - Shanghai - Cina

Marzo 2010

 

Da internet:

Nella città vecchia di Shanghai è stata ricreata un’area con edifici in stile Ming nota con il nome di Bazar YuYuan. Qui si trovano tantissimi ristoranti, negozi e bancarelle che vendono tantissimi articoli di artigianato cinese, souvenir e moltissimi oggetti di ogni tipo.

 

All’interno vi è anche la casa del tè Huxinting Chashi (Padiglione della casa del tè sul lago). Questa struttura è posta su un piccolo lago ed esiste da oltre quattro secoli ma solo nel 1855 è stata convertita in casa del tè.

Molto particolare sono i due ponticelli a zig zag che si devono percorrere per raggiungerla.

Sono stati costruiti cosi per confondere gli spiriti maligni che, secono la tradizione cinese, procedono solo per linee rette.

consiglio..... View On Black

The Jiuqu Qiao (the Nine-bend Bridge) in Yuyuan Garden of Shanghai's old town. The bridge winds more than a hundred meters because of its nine twists Flanked by balustrades with square posts, it has also by its side a mid-lake pavilion in which visitors may have a cup of tea in one of the nicest places in the Yuyuan Garden, the Hu Xing Tin Teahouse upstairs and enjoy the view all around. It sits in the middle of a lake. To get to the teahouse you have to cross the Nine-bend Bridge. Hundreds of goldfish live in the lake. Feeding them seems to be a popular pastime.

One of many buildings in the the Yu Garden.

Another example of a great detail from a Chinese roof. This one is from the Yu Garden although the building itself escapes me.

I happened to catch this couple enjoying the trees, water, and rocks from a bridge near the Yule Xie.

Visitors line the shopping area around the City God Temple. You can get a sense of how crowded the streets can get from this.

Tourists meander through the Yu Garden. This is a great example of the balance between the foliage and the buildings in the garden.

Best served on a stick:

 

OK, so I lied again. This temple has absolutely nothing to do with red monkeys. I just thought it sounded cool. Let’s chalk it up to artistic license.

 

I actually don’t know much about this temple except that it’s located inside The Yuyuan Garden in Shanghai. You’ll find it smack in the middle of Shanghai Old Street, the oldest area in the city. All of Old Street is built with this old Chinese architectural style & is quite impressive. There are also all sorts of shops and food vendors serving up plenty of random mystery meat(s) on sticks. Keep in mind that in China the word “beef” is a relative term.

Nine-bend bridge, Old Town, Shanghai China.

 

Jiuqu Qiao (the Nine-Bend Bridge) close to Yu Garden of Shanghai's old town. While this bridge only crosses a 30m (98.5 ft) lake, the bridge winds more than a 100m (328 ft) because of its nine twists.

Most of my shots from China don't have many crowds in them. This is mostly because it's difficult to take photos with lots of people bumping into you and people tend to block your view. This is one instance where there was no way I was going to be able to avoid crowds. This was taken in the middle of the Zigzag Bridge which was absolutely swarming with people. Not only was it narrow and crowded but since there are so many sights to see from the bridge, half of the people at any given time are stopped and looking around while the other half tries to push by them. To make matters worse, the people who are actually moving are usually going separate directions (there's no one direction to walk over the bridge). Anyway, hopefully this gives you a sense of just how packed it was.

Yu Yuan is a classic Chinese Garden set in the middle of the Old City in Shanghai. Yu Yuan is a a classical Chinese garden featuring pools, walkways, bridges, and rockeries, and was designed in the Architect's view of heaven. The garden was created in the sixteenth century by a high official in the Imperial court in honour of his father, pre-dating the international concessions by a few hundred years. Despite fluctuating fortunes, the garden has surprisingly survived the passage of the centuries, spared from the cultural revolution because the anti-imperialist "little sword society" used it as their headquarters.

 

Yu Yuan Garden - the classical Ming garden that was built originally in the 16th century is Shanghai's most famous classical garden and tourist central. Flocks of domestic and foreign tourists head to the area to get their fill of culture. All kinds of treasures are located in this small area that was once a walled enclave of Chinese-only when Shanghai was divided into foreign concessions.

The Yuyuan Garden is a famous classical garden located in Anren Jie, Shanghai. The garden was finished in 1577 by a government officer of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) named Pan Yunduan. Yu in Chinese means pleasing and satisfying, and this garden was specially built for Pan's parents as a place for them to enjoy a tranquil and happy time in their old age.

During the late Ming Dynasty, it became very dilapidated with the decline of Pan's family. During the Opium War of the 19th century, Yuyuan Garden was severely damaged. The Yuyuan Garden you see today is the result of a five year restoration project which began in 1956. The garden was open to the public in September, 1961.

Yuyuan Garden occupies an area of 20,000 square meters. The pavilions, halls, rockeries, ponds and cloisters all have unique characteristics.

Giardini Yuyuan - Shanghai - Cina

Marzo 2010

This is the famous Yuyuan garden area, you still could see the classic garden (with a fee :) ) and outside of it is just a zoo of street vendors selling really yummy food. When I went, it was super crowded and it definitely makes the food taste much better.
