Surround yourself with grand pagodas, impressive rockeries, and glittering ponds at Yu Garden! Also known as the Garden of Happiness, it was originally built during the Ming Dynasty by Sichuan governor Pan Yunduan as a private garden for his parents. Nowadays, it is frequented by visitors from all over, thanks to its breathtaking scenery worthy of a dozen snapshots! From the entrance, follow the trail going clockwise to witness the garden’s six main areas. Remember to plan your trip on a weekday, since weekends tend to draw bigger crowds.
Open today: 09:00-16:00

Actually a nice place to walk around while you’re free. The crowds outside are a bit maddening, but inside is much nicer
