Tranquil setting in downtown Portland

Authentic Chinese gardens and buildings make this a lovely visit for a short walk and rest from the busy city.

Visited in November and enjoyed all the mum displays. They were amazing. It poured rain, but you can stay undercover most of the time. A beautiful, serene spot.

The garden is peaceful and beautiful and the tour was very informative (although there is also plenty of information in their guidebook for you to do a self-guided tour). Our tour guide was very friendly and had a great sense of humor. There was a floral competition going on while we were there, so we had the added bonus of... More

Take a tour guide tour. It's priceless!! One of the guides has a book of poetry in the gift shop. Worth a look.

Beautiful Garden! When I visited it was raining, but the garden still amazed me. The Chinese structure was very detailed and the architecture was very interesting to observe. Although I went there in October, there were many flowers and plants still there. If you like the autumn colors, the red leaves accented the scenery lovely. I love Coi Fishes and... More

This is a beautiful garden located in the Chinatown section of Portland, which is not so pretty, but this garden is well worth going to visit. Be sure and try to join with a tour guide as it makes the experience so much more worthwhile to hear all of the cultural aspects of the gardens and architecture that make it... More

Went for one of their free days and they were packed. Understandably so. Boyfriend didn't want to follow after the crowded tour, so we wandered through the gardens, looked at the flowers, the ponds with koi, the amazing architecture. Have heard people love to visit the tea house, but didn't do so. Really, really gorgeous. I would absolutely go back... More

I just visited these gardens for the third time and still love them. This time I went to see the flower displays that were set up throughout the garden. They were beautiful, as was the entire place. It is being closed for a few months of remodeling (?), however, I highly recommend it if you would like a nice, peaceful... More

Portland Chinatown is not so pretty. Lan Su Garden sits smack middle of such buildings, yet it is a beautiful tranquil oasis beyond it's walls. Even better is 30 minutes in the tea room by Tao of Tea. There was a gentleman playing a traditional Chinese string instrument, we sampled 5 full bodied teas, and we looked at the lovely... More

Lovely spot to wander, contemplate... there are often events that are kid-friendly, and the tea house offers scrumptious bites and a great tea selection.
