Yang Tao Hotel, An Hai Garden (Yang Tao Yuan Zi An Hai Hua Yuan Dian 杨桃院子安海花园店)

In 2009, a couple, Wu Jin and Wang Jing Yun, walked into this garden and were so impressed by the evocative feeling of the fruit trees and surroundings that they decided to open a bed-and-breakfast here. Their vision turned into the first Yang Tao hotel, which was one of the pioneering B&Bs on Kulangsu. The sleek garden bar is a great place for a drink, even for non-guests.

2009年的一天,吴瑾夫妇与王京云夫妇走进了安海路的一个院子,顿时被吸引住了,那番景象至今难忘。“一进门,一棵枝繁叶茂的杨桃树轻轻摇曳在头顶,满树繁花,阳光透过缝隙轻轻洒在红砖地上。细细看,翠绿的杨桃果子躲在树叶之中,在无人打理的情况下它们仍静静生长,从不辜负什么,这难道不正是一直想要的生命的模样……“

正因这股情愫,使他们萌生了创办民宿的想法。于是,便有了第一家“杨桃院子”,安海路8号。
