A small well tended garden with flowering plants and shrubs amidst rock formations and cliffs. Gardens are lovely and has a spectacular view of the beach and sea. Could have been a tranquil visit if not for the crowds.

People come in for the piano museums housed in its grounds. if it is not too crowded, may be able to find a good spot to enjoy the serenity. it was overly... More

There's a Piano Museum inside the garden for those interested in old vintage pianos. The garden itself is small and pretty, especially since it's near the sea with a view of a nearby beach, but there are a lot of people walking alongside you as well, which can distract from the charm of the garden. However, it's still a top... More

An absolute must to see on Gulangyu, especially as it houses the piano museum. It's an unusual garden situated on the slopes leading down to the sea. The sea element gas been incorporated seamlessly into the garden landscape, a real masterpiece of Chinese garden art. The garden has a rockery made like a maze.

While fairly charming, it's a popular attraction with locals so be prepared to squeeze. Garden ticket includes entry to the Piano museum.

This place is very building, and quite Chinese in its architecture, as compared to those european inspired buildings in this island. Just avoid coming here during weekends and public holiday.

This is a private residence donated to state government. Beautiful house with nice garden and breathtaking scenary (hillview and seaview). The famous Piano Musuem is part of the property so you can see both by purchase one ticket.

Used to be a private garden on beach. Garden is well designed so that you can have good views from all angles. Lots of photo opportunities. Admission includes admission to Piano Museum, a worthwhile visit.

We choose a Saturday to visit Gulangyu and Shuzhuang Garden. So crowed and so hot. If not so many visitors, that would be better. Recommend to visit at the sun set~
