International students from Fudan University took a one-day trip to Guyi Garden, the largest of Shanghai's five classical Chinese gardens, on April 14.

Built during the reign of Emperor Wanli of the Ming Dynasty (1574-1620), the garden covers an area of nearly 10 hectares and is well-known for its ancient architecture, stone-paved paths, waterside landscape, and a range of rare trees and flowers scattering around.

The Nanxiang steamed buns, a local specialty which has won the hearts of many foodies, once again lured the students with its tender and rich flavor, moderate blend of meat and gravy, giving them a sense of satisfaction.

The students were delighted to take a day off to visit the garden. They agreed they had their taste buds satisfied and got a better understanding of Chinese culture, history and development.
