Said to be one of the four best classical gardens in China, it os well worth spending a couple of hours. It is very busy so be prepared for crowds. Be sure not to miss the other gardens in Yangzhou: Slender West Lake (a huge park) and the Li Family mansions (with a fantastic restaurant) and the Ge garden, which... More

Interesting house belonging to a salt merchant. Had to look around myself, very little English. I followed a Chinese couple who appeared to have a guide who promptly delivered us to a restaurant with no English menu. I tried to order with the help of a young girl who had very limited English and ended up with what looked like... More

The only one we enjoyed, strongly recommended, better than Geyuan Garden! Also should try the pancake at entrance made by two friendly dumb ladies - yummy!

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