Before I tell you how good this place is I will warn you about the rude and unhelpful staff at the gate. They advertise cheaper tickets of you pay using your travel card but if you try to do this the staff are less than helpful and bordering on rude. So without any discount it costs 30 to get in,...

It is not a spectacular garden. But it is a peaceful place to spend the morning away from the traffic jams in Chongqing.

This is a most delightful spot. Well work a visit. It is a mix of indoor and outdoor. You'll have to pay more to do both. The outdoor includes an amazing display of gourds, all suspended from trellises above you. Indoors, there is a variety of plants from around the world, including a most impressive display of cacti.

if you have the time to go up the mountain, then do it! its is really beautiful, the air is clean and the park is great. Also if the fog is not to dense you have a fantastic viewpoint from the Golden Eagle to the city.

this is beautiful in spring when the flowers are blooming with sunny weather... there are so many people selling cherry blossoms and peach blossoms stalks in front of the Botanic Gardens... so colorful just be careful of the trip back down as you will not be able to get a taxi.

This place is excellent! Worth the 30 minute ride up the hill. Spend the day there though, or at least half of it. It is beautiful.

This is worth the trip up the mountain! Especially during cherry blossom season. We went there on a weekend, and it was crowded, but it was well worth it. There is also a greenhouse with a great collection of cactus. The gardens are all set on the side of Nanshan Mountain, overlooking Chonging. Very nice experience.

It was lovely even in the rain we went to a Chinese Tea Ceremony which was lovely. Our only low point was the toilet facilities in the park where very poor.
