Add:Outside the South Gate of the Botanical Garden on Lingyin Rd
Just outside the southern entrance of the Botanical Garden you'll find this cozy little nook to sip some tea. The place was established in 1996 by the famous martial arts writer Jin Yong and was donated to the city with its 6,000 book collection. It's essentially a library with a garden around it (not that you can check out any of the books though). It's a great place to relax with friends and listen to the birds chirping away.
