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.

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.

In the middle of the city and noise, you can find peace in this beautiful garden. It is just amazing! Occasionally, it has exhibitions.
