really nice view and wide variety of flowers.

visited during spring and the crowd was crazy. it'd better if the pollution coming from the cars visiting the garden wasn't that bad, but then again it was during weekend.

Place is good to visit the flowers and plants from most part of the world. But its too much pricey , and most part are not maintained well. There is a trick , if you pay 50 RMB , its only one side of the garden you can visit , if you want to visit the inside portion you have... More

Another example of Chinese putting entry gate just to gather money for a normal part that in any other country is for free. First it's complicated to get here as its on a mountain and takes time to get, then you pay money to either just enter (just a part with trees) or more money to enter and be able... More

I am not a big fan of botanic gardens but if you are looking for a fresh air and clean parks, Nanshan Botanical Garden is one of the best in the city. It was quite crowed on my weekday visit, however, the area is big. You would need a separate ticket for an exhibition hall but there are some interesting... More

Before I tell you how good this place is I will warn you about the rude and unhelpful staff at the gate. They advertise cheaper tickets of you pay using your travel card but if you try to do this the staff are less than helpful and bordering on rude. So without any discount it costs 30 to get in,...

It is not a spectacular garden. But it is a peaceful place to spend the morning away from the traffic jams in Chongqing.

This is a most delightful spot. Well work a visit. It is a mix of indoor and outdoor. You'll have to pay more to do both. The outdoor includes an amazing display of gourds, all suspended from trellises above you. Indoors, there is a variety of plants from around the world, including a most impressive display of cacti.

if you have the time to go up the mountain, then do it! its is really beautiful, the air is clean and the park is great. Also if the fog is not to dense you have a fantastic viewpoint from the Golden Eagle to the city.
