It is a typical classical Chinese garden. I like the concept of scene consisted four seasons inside the garden. The owner of this garden really spent lots of efforts in constructing this charming garden. Also, it is well preserved. Definitely worth to visit it. However, of course, try your best to excape from the crowded people during weekend or Sun.

This garden is just as typical as all the other Chinese gardens- There is a variety of Bamboos all over the garden. There is also many artificial rocks, which i heard was taken from another province in China by a wealthy man, There is also a mini lake in this Garden. However, it all ends there. There is an endless... More

There are many gardens in Yangzhou, Geyuan is one of some very typical one with bamboos, and also called as "One of the Four Most Famous Garden". You may see many kinds of bamboo there, and also some ancient furnitures. The garden there is also very elegant with artificial hill and mini lake.

Along with Shou Xihu Garden. Also in Yangzhou, a must see. But go first thing in the morning and avoid weekends to have any chance of seeing this marvelous garden with any sense of personal space. There are a lot of people in China and they want to see this garden too. The only question is,why do Chinese need to... More

As has already been said, this is a nice estate, the dwelling area is interesting and the garden is well done. But it is the one area of Yangzhou I went on a weekend that was TEEMING with tourists. I appreciated Shi Congi much more just because it was vacant and still nice.

This home of a former government official who was in charge of salt allocation obviously did quite well in his job! It is quite huge and as we hired a tour guide, she was able to point out for us to notice the slopes of the roof, and how all the rain water would slope down towards the courtyard into... More

Built by a wealthy salt merchant in the early 19th century, this garden ranks among the top four gardens in China. Particularly interesting is the large collection of various types of bamboo in the garden. There are also four distinct courtyards that represent the foru seasons, with rocks sourced from different places in China to give the desired colour and... More

Of Yangzhou's two famous garden estates, this was probably the more interesting one. In my opinion, though, they are too much alike for it to be worth it to see both. Geyuan, like its counterpart Heyuan, is overrun with tour groups and wedding parties, whose numbers and whose guides with loudspeakers destroy the intended tranquil ambiance of the Chinese garden.
