Yesterday we visited the south botanical garden and I just can say it's worth the entrance fee. This park is not so crowded like the rest I saw and much more clean. There you can forget the hectic of the big city for a moment and relax. The greenhouses are nice, the extra fee for visiting them is 30RMB.

The park is in the city but you don't feel the hectic inside, it's good for a walk or picnic. Don't rent those 4 wheal bicycle, those one are very hard to ride and after short time you just want to return it. You go there once is enough. You can skip this part without missing anything if you are... More

Nice green space, good for a break from the city. Conservatories disappointing, not worth the additional entry fee. Unfortunately like most gardens in china, started with ambitions, but lacks maintenance

Butterflies - I visited here in the autumn and saw more butterflies here in their natural surroundings than I saw on BaiYun mountain. It is a little out of the way to get to. You can ride the metro as far as you can on line 6 and then walk the last 15 minutes (it is on the same street... More

A bit more to offer than most Chinese parks, the greenhouses are great and you can get a day of activity and exercise for the kids. No real food options. You can hire bikes to cycle round very cheaply.

The botanical garden is a very huge place but you can take small buggy cars running in between the sights. Like always in China it is a problem to be understood but you can jump on the car and it takes you somewhere for sure. The flowers are beautiful and very colourful and the variety of botanical aras are great.... More

The botanic garden was a great experience for both my husband and myself. We loved seeing all the fauna and learning about what grows in china. The only bummer was that we were here when little was blooming. Still remarkably beautiful.

Highly recommended. I just happened to stumble upon the place and I didn't regret it. I am, however a big fan of nature but regardless, it's a nice plan to check out if you're in the city.
