OK, I lived in Japan for many years and know the Koi (Carp) quite well. It is always fun to see the beautiful colors of the fish and to watch them eat from your hands. We went on the weekend and although there were many fish, there was so many people around all trying to get the fish to eat.... More

I am an animal person, and fish too. Walking along Yanggongdi Road for half an hour, you can get to this park, no entrance fee. Recommend to families with kids, you can buy some fish food (RMB10 for 4 small bags) at the entrance and go feeding the carps at the pond. You will be awed to see how huge... More

If you do go on the Su Causeway, near the south end you will see a bridge going west to this park, in chinese 花港观鱼。 It's really beautiful and worth a stop. You will find kiosks that sell fish food for 3 yuan for a bag, and it is fun to watch the golden carp go crazy over the food.... More

The gardens and fish are lovely, but not as lovely as the Humble Administrator in Suzhou or the Pearl Pagoda in Tongli, in my opinion. Definitely worth wandering though the garden but for me the views across the lake and the blossoms and the pagoda were far more picturesque.

When you arrive at the fish garden, the closer you get, what you start to see is this movement of gold & orange in the water. As you get closer, you can see that it is hundreds of Koi gold fish, swimming close together, hoping to get a bit of food, offered by the tourist. They are so thick, it... More

Suggest to feed fishes in the pond. There're a lot. If you like photo-taking, get your camera ready when feeding fish. You can capture the fish-eating moment like in Chinese painting.

As one of the ten classic attractions of West Lake, Huagang Guanyu is located in one side of Su causeway. It is not only as a place to appreciate the golden fishes, but also a nice place to enjoy the greens and various flowers like a large garden.
