Most Famous Classical Garden

Yu Yuan Garden
Quite deceptive in size, the garden gives one the illusion of a larger area. It contains the essential "four elements" of the Chinese garden — water, rock, buildings and plants.

Yu Yuan Garden features tranquil lotus ponds, bamboo trees, beautiful pavilions, terraces, chambers and towers, winding paths, little bridges, rockeries and unusual stones.
