Highlights: Yuyuan Garden

If I’m going to be entirely honest with you, my China trip already feels like it happened years ago. However, much of what I saw and experienced there still resides in my heart, so I figured I might as well take the time to reflect on one of my favourite parts of the trip – the Yuyuan Garden.

The gardens felt like moment of peace nestled in the depths of the bustling city. That may have been the worst sentence I’ve ever written in my life, but there you are! The beauty of the traditional-style garden and architecture can’t really be expressed in words, so here are some photographs.

The Exquisite Jade Rock, one of three similar stones that are famous because… Well, look at it!

TO BE FAIR IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES IN CHINA WITHOUT PEOPLE IN THEM OK

Me rockin’ the signature obnoxious neon hat.

I did a lot more than just sit around the garden and look pretty that day, though. So, here’s the original post!
