“Not the romantic image I imagined!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The name conjured up for me images of flying geese. Quite far off the mark! A nice enough little pagoda. Maybe I was a little spoiled with the amazing range of images of this complex country.

“This is a peaceful place in visit in a busy city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

A lovely peaceful park is around the Pagoda and it is a nice place to relax with some good photo opportunities available. Part of a hectic tour it made an enjoyable break.

“Lovely Park and Dancing Fountain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We didn't have time to visit the pagoda itself as the queues were enormous (it was Chinese National Holiday), but the park was fascinating; very busy, well laid out, plenty of places to eat (both Chinese and Western).
At 2pm every afternoon the fountains 'dance' to Chinese and western classical music for half an hour. It really was a spectacular display.
The park is free to enter, the only charge being to see the pagoda itself.

“Amazing Fabrics and Jade”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is a relatively small museum which mainly houses an exhibition of jade artefacts and exquisite dresses and costumes dating right up to the twentieth century. Unlike most other sites entry is free! In the grounds is the Small Goose Pagoda.

“Pretty grounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The whole garden/grounds area of the Small Goose Pagoda are quite well kept and picturesque. I especially enjoyed the rose garden which added some beautiful colour to my pictures of the pagoda. I didn't take time to go through the museum because I'm not much of a fan, but presenting your passport (or photocopy) will get you free entrance to the grounds and museum.
