Visited it again last Saturday for the Jade Vine. Really gorgeous colors and shapes! @ Greenhouse Fee: ¥50 on site (you may purchase a ticket on some tourist website and it's only ¥38)

The botanical garden is located outside of the city of Guangzhou. The conservatory is especially beautiful, not only the plants and trees but the paths leading around them. I took two buses to get there, so allow plenty of travel time to get there and back. There's food available at the garden, but fairly close by is an area with... More

Took the bus 775 to 华南植物园 with my friends. We found the place really peaceful and fresh. Maybe because we went there a week before Chinese New Year, so lots of people had already left Guangzhou to there hometown. I had a good time and indeed enjoyed the lack of people all around ^^

It's without doubt my favourite in Guangzhou!!! Visited it several times and each time I got surprises. Love shooting flowers especially, though I have no professional equipments. Every time I find a new flower that I never saw, it's such a great joy. Lawns, trees, rivers... all make it a perfect place for a peaceful relaxation. Greenhouses are also wonderful,... More

this city is full of buildings, its a forest of steel, but this garden in the middle of this city, you can break your day by going there and take a short walking to stay happy and fun, keep looking to the flowers and green spaces.

Great place to add to your tour of the city. We had a great time walking around the Garden and seeing all the plants and trees that were different from the U.S. where we live.

My parents and I visited the botanical garden several times every year. We walked along the paths in the woods and feel the freshest air. And we had lunches by the lake. We visited the garden several days consecutively. It's our favorite place.

The concept of the garden reflects the three oceans, shown through lakes and the five continents through greenhouse buildings of which each stores the plants from one of the five continents. In February / March many plants are blooming and the beauty of the different colours exposed by their blossoms is breathtaking. Due to the sheer size of the park... More
