traditional chinese garden with grotto areas, small lagoon filled with koi carps and terrapins and pagodas...a little oasis as people have stated. tai chi practitioners, families and some musicians practicing what sounded like cantonese folk songs when we were there. very quaint and restful, close to san lazaro area i think

This is an wonderful property with walls that enable you to feel surrounded by nature - you can even hear the trees on the far left side of the property bend and creak in the wind. The ponds are a little "thick" with algae but I also visited at a dry time before it began raining again. The bonsai tree... More

This is a traditional old Chinese house with a big landscape garden and pond with lotus flowers. I don’t believe how they can maintain all architectures so well. You will feel very relax when you take a stroll in the garden. I like those bonsai plants near the entrance. They are fantastic. It is not easy to find other places... More

Great hidden retreat and a place to get away from the buzzing scooters. Come in the morning and will often find people playing traditional Chinese instruments.

It's definitely not a serene oasis, due to the noise from the surrounding roads, but it is a beautiful spot packed full of interesting bits, like lily-filled ponds, wacky bridges, grottoes, bamboo, and even a free art gallery. Do not miss this garden.

I visited there in the hottest day in Macau in 2015. We are so lucky that there are some painting exhibitions at the Pavilion of the Lou Lim Ioc Garden. If you visit here in July, please take a look on Lotus flower blossoms at the pool inside Mr. Lou's luxury garden. As per my every visit, I cannot help... More

I visited Lou Lim Leoc garden yesterday with a friend , we like the cool air of the garden I guess because of the bamboo trees all around the place , we watch the fish and turtles in the pond. There are also some dove flying every now and then. I would like to visit this place every time I... More

This garden is for those who wish to see the untouristed Macau. Far from the pedestrian attractions like Lardo de Senado and the casinos, this garden-cum-park is like an oasis in a sea of concrete building. You can take fotos of bamboos and turtles, see old Macanese congregate underneath a Chinese Pavilion, see a free gallery exhibit and visit the... More

Thisnplace hasn't changed since I first visited 20 years ago. The gardens are picturesque and the houses hold interesting exhiitions It's not surprising that this is often used as a film location.
