If you wonder how to live in the ancient chinese building with lots of fish ponds and artificial lake, you must visit this place. The roses there were very beautiful.

Feeding the fish is more fun than you think it will be. The 'gardens' consist of a fair bit more paving and concrete than I would have expected. The exhibits are very good although the vast majority of exhibits have only Chinese explanations. It's actually two exhibits in one, separated by a short walk, you can choose to go to... More

Thousands of carps swimming around the waterway. Can buy fish food from stall inside garden. This place is large to walk about by city standard. For self-tour: take metro to Shiqiao & walk to a bus stop near shopping centre, then take No.67 to the last stop where the Garden entrance is.

A beautiful garden to relax and to enjoy art. Buy food to feed the koi. Direction: Take subway line 3 to Shiqiao station, then take bus 76 to the last stop (Baomo) or take a taxi there (taxis are very inexpensive).

This is a vast place, so allow for plenty of time if you're into Chinese painting Ned calligraphy. You'll learn about the 'precious' implements for writing. You'll be amazed by the fine art. The museum was almost entirely work of private investors, who apparently involved the local villagers who are now rich because what was once their farmland has been... More

I live in GZ. I was at the Baomo Scenery (Gardens) last year. It's quite a ways out of GZ proper but accessible by subway and buses. Took us about 1 hour to get there by public transport. You can take a taxi at about 100RMB. This place is hard to describe because it's just do darn beautiful and there's... More

As long as you aren't going to check out genuine museum quality artifacts, this is a great afternoon trip for most. Beautiful gardens and wonderful architecture all featuring Chinese 'Antiques' (Modern Replicas) on display in a museum type atmosphere. The rose garden and fish feeding are the highlights of the trip, be sure to bring a camera and your best... More

Fun place to visit. You can catch goldfish. Walk through some scenic area's. There are lots of places to sit and enjoy watching people. Good family place. Children can catch goldfish. Enjoyed it very much. Peaceful and entertaining. There are a few small museums to visit in the gardens. A pool as well even though not yet opened when I... More

I just visited Baomo Gardens today and was completed floored by the beauty of the place and by the rich, cultural artifacts housed in its many pavilions. So, I was very surprised to see and felt compelled to respond to the number of reviews that trashed the place as having no cultural value. This is a complete lie. First of... More

For those who enjoy a stroll in a Chinese style garden environment, this will be a good place to go. However, as everything is new, there isn't much fun for those who seeks a bit of history or relics.
