The garden is very nice with many pretty trees and rocks. I felt like I was in the movie as I walked. The place is crowded with the Chinese tour group.

We were told by our tour guide that this was once a family home. I could definitely live here! The pond, pergolas and walkways were beautiful along with the amazing amount of bonsai. It was surprising to find that the garden is located on a busy yet beautiful tree lined street full of shops. Worth seeing!

It was absolutely stunning! I could have spent several more hours here. This garden is a beautiful example of a traditional Chinese Garden. I just wanted to stop, close my eyes and meditate. It felt very at peace and content here.
