This place is very building, and quite Chinese in its architecture, as compared to those european inspired buildings in this island. Just avoid coming here during weekends and public holiday.

This is a private residence donated to state government. Beautiful house with nice garden and breathtaking scenary (hillview and seaview). The famous Piano Musuem is part of the property so you can see both by purchase one ticket.

Used to be a private garden on beach. Garden is well designed so that you can have good views from all angles. Lots of photo opportunities. Admission includes admission to Piano Museum, a worthwhile visit.

We choose a Saturday to visit Gulangyu and Shuzhuang Garden. So crowed and so hot. If not so many visitors, that would be better. Recommend to visit at the sun set~

It was at night when we visited Shuzhuang Garden. Because it was dark and there was few visitors in the garden, rather quiet. My friends and I strolled in the garden, and enjoyed the night view of Sunlight Rock, as well as the sea on the little bridge in the garden. What's more, there is a piano museum in the... More

Shuzhuang Garden offers people a comparative higher place to veiw the sea. I think it is a little boring because not too many things to see. But when stading on the top, I had a bird view of this garden and found it is more beautiful. Also, if pay the fee of this garden, you can visit the piano museum... More

We strolled through this small garden (relative to the large gardens in other big cities in China) on the way to the Piano Museum, located on the hill on the left side. Good photo opportunities of family members with backdrops of trees, shrubs, bridges, the sea, the beach and small chinese style buildings. Across the sea, on the right, is... More

The designer of this garden deserves a medal. Incorporated into the garden are hills and valleys, the ocean and a fresh water pool, waterfalls and bare rocks, lawns and gardens. And all of this is in a fairly small plot of land with two museums thrown in for good measure! Well worth strolling around the place and enjoying the magnificent... More

there is a piano musem inside the garden. But the presentation is very poor just with pianos standing around without backgroud music or much explanation. The garden is very common in other area of China.

You have to pay rmb30 per person to enter. Its part of Gulangyu Island. It has a walkway beside the sea cliff. Also inside this Shuzhuang Garden is the Piano Museum. It is very picturesque area, we took a lot of beautiful photos here.
