The Chinese artisans who came to Portland did a fantastic job bringing traditional Chinese building techniques to NW Portland. The Teahouse is worth a stop for an extensive selection of teas and tea ceremonies.

This small but beautiful garden was built by Chinese artisans with lots of rock and structures imported from China. It's right in Chinatown which is in Portland downtown. Spend a couple of hours so that you can appreciate the beauty, click some memories and smell the blooming. Very refreshing. You forget you are in the middle of the city. The... More

You really should try to visit this garden. There's nothing like it outside of China In fact, it was built by Chinese artisans with tons and tons of rock and structures imported from China. It's right in Chinatown which is right downtown. Plan on taking a few hours so you can stop and smell the blooming. So refreshing.

This was located in the heart of things and it wasn't too big. We stopped and had some tea at the tea house, there was a wait. And when you order a cookie or dessert, it's more than you thought it would be. So share!

Spent a lovely morning, in spite of the rain, touring the gardens. Our guide was amazing with tons of information about the garden and its origins. You forget you are in the middle of the city. The garden is very well designed and you feel like you are in China.

We're garden members who have been coming here for years. It's a beautiful, little respite from city life that's a treat during any season. We especially like it in the rain!

This urban walled garden is so full of interesting and stunning scenery, I could have stayed all afternoon. The variety of architecture and landscape, along with the plants and water came together so magically. We visited the tea house for treats and a hot pot of tea. Probably the most beautiful park I have ever visited anywhere on Earth- all... More

It's within high walls on a small city block, yet Lan Su Chinese Garden is so beautifully designed and built that it becomes a much larger contemplative space in the middle of the city.
