NanXiang Jiading District – Shanghai, China

We selected another great area off of the metro line map to explore. On this trip we took Line 11 to a north Shanghai area in the Jiading District called NanXiang. This area is famous for Xiaolongbao steamed buns, Guyi Gardens a Ming Dynasty park, and  Yun Xiang Si Temple. Due to timing we were able to visit Guyi Gardens, walked down some old town streets and ate Xiaolongbao.

The following photo’s are more architectural designs and a few scenic views. I am still amazed at some of the intricate elements we find in Asian architecture. Enjoy!

    • I agree with you, those are pretty neat. Please feel free if you’d like to download and use as you would like. I think the artist is pretty darn creative to use bamboo that way. Thanks for stopping and commenting. Have a fabulous day!


    • It was a nice area and I think I got this idea off your blog. I don’t have my notes in front of me sorry… but if it was, thank you. There is a garden you mentioned in Sheshan and we couldn’t find it. I’ll have to look and let you know. Hope all is well with you. What do you think of this crazy snow that is actually sticking to the ground? Have a great evening!

      • Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve been on here! I just got back from Thailand and landed smack dab right in the middle of work mode, arggh! I was loving the snow ( I come from Ohio and quite enjoy winter fun). After the snow it was off to Thailand! Hahaha. Which garden were you looking for in Sheshan?

      • Welcome back! Glad you went to the states and had a fabulous time in Thailand. Sounds like a good time!!… Actually, not in Sheshan but it was a water garden you had recommended off of line 9. I’ll send you the exact name, sorry, again I don’t have the information in front of me.


    • I think you’re referring to the mushroom recipe. If so, there is a recipe I’d like to try that my friend is doing for lasagna. Using thin slices of zucchini instead of noodles, veggie mix instead of meat, and tofu instead of cheese. Doesn’t that sound fantastic? My challenge will be the sauce. Another vegetarian recipe to try. I’m looking for a vegetarian hotdog, know of any?


      • Oh – I make my lasagna like that! My mom told me about it and it’s so great if you’re getting away from those quick carbs or wheat! Can’t help you on hotdogs… in any form they’re off my list! 🙂
