Dairy Queen at Yuyuan Bazaar

Located in the Old Chinese City, southwest of the Bund, lies the old Chinese Quarter of historic Shanghai. At the center is the Yuyuan Gardens which are surrounded by many of the city’s old buildings and the Yuyuan Bazaar. The bazaar is a tangle of commercial souvenir and antique shops, as well as teahouses, wine houses, snack bars, restaurants and the occasional well known American franchise such as Dairy Queen and Starbucks. Of course I had to get a DQ blizzard at the bazaar.

  1. I remember this place! And the DQ… Terrible way to ruin a historic place! It was so crowded we could hardly move when we were there but I loved the architecture.
