Amanyangyun's setting belies its proximity to Shanghai's metropolitan heart; the historic Bund district, along with cultural, dining and shopping attractions, are all within an easy drive away. Head further afield to explore the traditional canal town of Zhujiajiao and the cultural hubs of Hangzhou and Suzhou.
Breath in the forest
Resting alongside Amanyangyun, the 10-hectare Forest Park is a sacred green haven with a remarkable story. Its giant camphor trees seeded themselves in Fuzhou a millennia ago, but today reach for the sky on the outskirts of Shanghai. Picnic in emerald forest glades, jog through dappled sunlight or cycle through the soothing shade of these magnificent trees. Guided Tai Chi, yoga and meditation can also be arranged in the peace and privacy of Forest Park.
Amanyangyun offers a number of personalised off-property activities and excursions. Expert guides accompany guests on private outings tailored specifically to their needs and interests. Half-day excursions include exploring the hidden streets of the Former French Concession. Visit Yuyuan Garden, stroll along the Bund and experience tea tasting in Xintiandi.
Preserved water towns
Zhujiajiao is an ancient water town with a history dating back more than 1,700 years. North Street is the best-preserved street in town. Take your time wandering down this ancient thoroughfare and appreciating the long-established stores and historic buildings.
Named after the royal reading pavilion in the Forbidden City, Nan Shufang is the cultural heart of Amanyangyun. Dedicated to Chinese art forms and the pursuit of knowledge, it is a cultural centre housed within the most architecturally impressive antique buildings to have made the journey from Fuzhou.
