Xianhu botanical garden is one of the better tourist destinations in the modern city of ShenZhen. It is very large, and hilly, so you should be a hiker to get the full benefit of what it has to offer. If you are not a walker and your only destination is the active Buddhist temple, the most prominent and interesting feature... More

This is a big park - too big for a walker who is disabled or has a hard time getting around. And if it is hot and humid, as it was in mid November, it will be even more difficult. It was pretty, but I have seen other parks in Shenzhen that are even prettier. For 3 yuan you can... More

This is a beautiful garden with many trips and a small lake with a stream or two that will lead you to the lake. There are food stalls if you hike the lesser hiked trails there are some small monuments. There is a wide ranch of plants and trees. There are some steps but, you can often take a different... More

I have a bad back. When I got there, I realized to see this park, you need to bring 3 pair of comfortable shoes. I only was able to take a bus around the Garden, which cost additionally.

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
