Botanical Garden. With a lake, some bird houses , a lot to hike and see. You can easily spend a Day there with the hole Family or alone.I think the Bus 113 goes almost until the end there.

As others have said, for 20RMB this is a bargain. It's a huge park and walking around here in the heat could be draining. We did it in 23-25C and it was warm working our way back down from the Ho Fang temple. The bus up is only 3RMB per person and unless you are a devout petitioner, it's the... More

I went here yesterday (06/03/2015) and spent about 4 hours looking around. Unbelievable value at 20 yuan entrance fee! It was easy to get to from the tube then the bus which terminates at the park entrance. I did get a little lost, although all the different exhibitions were in Chinese and English I didn't get an English map. As... More

20 rmb per person. I considered it would be more interesting: different plants, flowers. But it was almost like an usual chinese park with climbing to the Temple, some fields and lawns for picnic. And a big lake. We wanted to take catamaran, but didn't have enough money for deposit (100-200 rmb). The cashier even didn't want to take my... More

The Botanical Garden is easy to access via taxi or bus. The entrance fee is reasonable and cheap at 20RMB. However, note that it is located on a hill which is highly exposed to the weather, so remember to check the forecast and I do not recommend the disabled to visit. There are unofficial (though technically not illegal) services in... More

SHENZEN is not blessed with many natural features ,EXCEPT the xianhu botanical gardens or fairy gardens . Not to be missed is the PETRIFIED FOREST ,with a small museum of relics of the JURASSIC PARK times .

We spent most of a day strolling, hiking, and exploring the vast and varied gardens and vistas. We could return and still have plenty to see. We especially enjoyed the area set up for low-light plants and on road returning to the entrance there is local produce and honey for sale. We went during the week and there were few... More
