The Huxinting Teahouse is one of the central features of the Yu Gardens in the Old City. To the left is the zigzag Bridge of Nine Turnings. This bridge is one of the most iconic sights in Shanghai. It was impossible to get a clear view of the whole bridge without being higher up. Either from a drone or nearby building, neither of which I had access to. Visiting the gardens was the first thing I did on my first visit to China a few weeks ago. With a 24 hour stopover in the city, I went straight to the gardens early on a Saturday morning. It was very crowded, as expected.
