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 a wonderful display during Lotus season (late May/June). There is a small exhibition of family history, a performance area and an exhibition hall. Early morning you will find local residents practicing their tai chi or even Chinese opera music/singing. A lovely peaceful spot in which to spend a relaxing hour. Next door is the Tea House Museum (with weekend tastings) and the gardens are a scant 10 minute stroll from the famous Three Lamps district and Red Market - or just around the corner from Tap Seac Square with its heritage buildings, archive museum and an art exhibition centre.
