We had a wonderful time in Tibet. We have learned a lot about this unique destination because of the wonderful guide Degyi who is so knowledge and always available towards our tours. We stayed at the Shangri-La Hotel Lhasa, and we would never imagine a Tibet travel could be so nice and amazing without the help of Degyi.

Also, thanks a lot to our Tibetan driver Mr.Wongdun for his safe driving and a good sense of service along the way.

We shall return Tibet in the near future!

Yuyuan GardenYuyuan Garden is a famous classical garden in South China. It is located in the heart of the Shanghai Old City. The garden is called "Yuyuan" because "Yu" in Chinese language means "health and peace", a place of peace and comfort in the heart of Shanghai. The garden was completed in 1577 in the Ming Dynasty by a government official Pan Yunduan who used 20 years to construct a private garden for Pan's parents as a place for them to enjoy a tranquil and happy time in their high ages.

Yuyuan Garden,ShanghaiThe garden covers a significant space and includes a few halls and other buildings of interest. Its cultural relics include the century-old furniture, calligraphic and painting works of famous artists, clay sculptures and brick carvings as well as some inscriptions and couplets.

One of the highlights of the garden is the Exquisite Jade Yuyuan Garden,ShanghaiRock. It is a 5-ton, porous, beautifully-shaped, grotesque rock, which is said to have been carried from Taihu (Tai Lake) in Wuxi, Jiangsu province. The rock is characterized by its wrinkled appearance, slender shape, translucent nature and numerous holes eroded by water. An interesting legend goes that the rock was found some 1000 years ago, and it was originally one of Song Emperor Huizong's private collection before it found its way into Yu Garden.  The surrounding bazaar area offers good shopping opportunities, where gold and jewels, and traditional Chinese products are on sale.
