This has to be one of the most impressive Chinese gardens that I have ever seen. The paths wind around the garden over beautiful bridges. The water is teaming with fish, tortoises and toads. It is amazingly peaceful there in the middle of a busy city. There are places to sit down and just take in the atmosphere. Definitely worth... More

Lou Lim Ieok Garden is a beautiful Suzhou style garden (free entry). It is a lovely place to visit year round but is particularly special during the annual Chinese New Year (CNY) holiday period. At this time of the year, Lou Lim Ieok Garden is fully decorated with traditional Spring Festival period flowers, plants and a blossom trees. The garden... More

I have been to this Suzhou-style little garden in Macau on several occasions, and it is very relaxing to stroll around it and take a break from the bustle of the Macau city center. There is a pond and a few rock sculptures, and a fair number of exotic plants and trees. You can watch older Macau inhabitants practice Tai... More

It is a park where locals go to spend their spare time. Sometimes it has display of seasonal flowers. It is suzhou garden style with a lake and rock sculpture. Sometimes you will hear people singing opera and playing chinese music. There is also a gallery and tea museum. It was originally owned by a wealthy merchant but later bought... More

Lou Lim Lok Garden is a small but lively garden in the centre of Macau. Converted from the mansion previously own by the famous Lou family, this petite garden contain a pond which give you different view of the garden in different seasons of the year. A scroll in the morning is not exactly quiet as there are many locals... More

If you have a few minutes then you should stop by this park because it is a really neat park with tons of cool things to look at like the plants that are from the region plus the neat tile mosaic which is along the outer wall of the park. You can also climb to the top of the man... More

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.
