The gardens are very big. We went there to look for the Bamboo Forest but did not find it. What we did find were lots of tranquil paths and areas to explore where there were no other people around. It was a lovely place to...More

We were able to take tour boat around the waterways. Reminded me of miniature South Louisiana swamp tour. Ok thing to do, but not great....average. If they had a beer or 2...it could have been better. But, tea is king in China.

I came here with my teenage son hoping to do some birding. The garden is beautiful, and we saw more birds here than at Xixi Wetlands. It’s a very serene place with beautiful plants and flowers, nicely laid out with good signage. There’s a modest...More
