The Yuhua Pebble (yuhuashi) from the Yuhua Terrace is also a popular souvenir and many pebbles carry a specific tale or legend with them. The best place to buy souvenirs is in the area around Confucius Temple. Be prepared to bargain hard however, as store owners here have a tendency to over-charge foreigners!
