Yu Garden

In contrast to the tall skyscrapers, bright lights, and bustling streets throughout most of Shanghai, you could take a visit to the Yu Garden. This beautiful botanical garden is not too far outside of the city, about 15 minutes from the Bund, but it still allows for a change of scenery. Put some time aside to spend at this garden, although I would recommend avoiding popular times, such as the afternoon, as the crowds might ruin the setting a bit. Also, the greenery, ponds, and detailed architecture make for a great background in photos.
