I had a difficult time finding the entrance off the main road until I found someone who spoke English (after several tries). Once I got inside, it was worth the effort. It's really a lovely walled garden filled with old architecture, ponds, and foot bridges....More

A typical Chinese garden, large professional, well laid out, washrooms inside, nice ponds/rocks & bonsai trees. Do not go on the weekend of a Chinese holiday.....stupidly busy.... Please could use some TLC, fresh paint, and cleaning would spruce it up nicely. I didn't see any...More

Well worth a look if you have some spare time, more than 600 years old and represents well the time of the Ming Dynasty. As a fisherman I enjoyed sitting around the ponds observing the native fish. The buildings are photogenic and the gardens well...More
