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.

Lovely garden, picturesque. It's all FREE! There's a tea house in one corner of it that you can look around - also free. Lovely views, ponds, rock formations, etc.......definitely worth a visit.

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.

Alongside with Tea Culture House and lovely ponds, this micro-park offers just a bit of silence and relaxation in Macao. Located 5 minutes away from Coronel Lacerda (Tap Seac) square, the garden is a must if you will be in the area (normally, visiting Tap Seac Gallery, but i think the square itself is worth a visit). Standard Macanese streets... More

If you are spending more than 2/3 days in Macau I think that Lou Lim Iok garden is a must see place in Macau. Nearby Tap Seac area and Red Market is such a peaceful garden to rest a bit from the muddle of Macau.

This little garden is beautiful, and well worth a visit. There are lovely fish ponds, and an attached museum about tea-making. We went on Sunday, and there were musicians playing traditional instruments.
