We visited the garden in the afternoon which apparently was the exact time people from the area go to the garden as well. You'll see kids running around, mothers and nannies pushing strollers while doing small talk, old people playing checkers and tourists taking pictures. There's not much to see in the garden except for, well, flowers and different plants... More

Suzhou in China is renowned for its architectural landscaping and this garden is a delightful example here in Macau. A central lake, pagodas/pavilions, bamboo,fabulous rocks, a meandering path often leading you to a dead end or to lakeside, which is filled with fish. There is a small bonsai section, always an array of changing seasonal plants at the end and... More

Macau is a very crowded city with narrow streets and ugly old high rise buildings, so it's nice to find a peaceful Chinese garden in its midst. It had the usual rock features and ponds and nice garden beds and bamboo. Not crowded when I went and entry is free. Within walking distance of St. Paul's ruins.

beautiful garden in the heart of downtown Macau. a little peace of tranquility among the concrete jungle but can be hard to find if you arent too familiar with the area! lovely during lotus blossom season, lots of rock gardens and a small man made waterfall. pretty little place with some shady places to sit too.

Great place to get a sense of calm in the most densely populated place in the world. Locals playing chess, kids feeding fish and turtles, plants and flowers all over the place.

You will amazed found out this serene garden is surrounded by high raised buildings. It is a good place to relax, have a sit and plan your next visit in Macau. The garden also offer us great rock formation that create a sensation that we were in the old Chinese era.

The gardens were well tended and serene with carefully placed plants and shrubs. As the garden is walled up, the busyness of the streets and pedestrian traffic is cordoned off. A nice place to spend some minutes admiring the ponds and gazebos.
