Ultimate Guide to Shanghai Yuyuan Garden Lantern Festival

Yuyuan Garden's Year of the Dragon Lantern Festival is officially lit up~ This year continues the theme of last year's 'Magical Wonders of Mountains and Seas', launching the 'Sea Sutra' chapter, inviting us to step into the romantic ceiling of Chinese style! Experience the grandeur of the Tang Dynasty's prosperity, and fully appreciate the visualization of Xin Qiji's poetry 'A night of fish and dragon dance' in Yuyuan Garden, it's just like a real-life version of Big Fish & Begonia! 🤩 📍 Location: Yuyuan Garden Mall (not inside the scenic area, but ticket checking starts at each entrance after admission fee) 🚇 Transportation: Line 10 / Line 14 Yuyuan Garden Station Exit 7 / Exit 1 🗺️ Recommended Route: 1.
