My Shanghai friends and family laugh at me for going to Old Town and the tea house-"real Shanganise do not go there" they say. But some do accompany me and it is very pleasant once you get there. I like to while away an afternoon...More

Yes it is a challenge to get there (all those selfie sticks blocking the zig zag bridge) and probably the most expensive cup of tea you’re likely to have. But once you’re upstairs looking out across the crowds and the water, it’s lovely. Nice to...More

A very nice historic building built on water , hosting a nice old tea house . The entrance is a zigzag bridge not to let ghosts in . The Queen of England visited the place .

The main attraction is that it is over two hundred years old which defies belief. It has obviously been renovated many times and is in reality a very expensive café (A cup of tea is 98 RMB). It is on the second floor of the...More

Cross the Jiuqu Bridge to a pavilion in the middle of a lake just outside the entrance to Yu Gardens. The Mid-Lake Pavilion Teahouse has a sign that says that it’s over 200 years old, which means you can have the privilege of having tea...More

Lovely setting. Upstairs sat next to the window with the view of the surrounding water. Feeling very peaceful. Tea is over priced but nice. Qual eggs are delightful.

This tea house sits in the middle of an artificial lake, just outside the Yuyuan Gardens and is free to visit. If you can get near it. The crooked path that leads to the building is so congested and once you're there, you'll realize it's...More

This tea house, sitting out on the lake in the old city, and reached by zig-zag walkways (because bad spirits only go in straight lines), is another must do. Sitting on the top floor on a sunny day watching the people, while drinking some of...More

Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the
streets that serve as the border to the old city. An
aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts

referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists
every day, but wandering the streets around the
