Tea and nature

Lovely garden, and the tea house offers a good tea selection, including tea served in a gaiwan. Cool. Gift shop was small but well-stocked.

Had been in many Japanese Gardens but never a Chinese garden. Loved it. Very interesting. I recommend taking the tour to learn about the theory behind it. The water lilies and lotus were in full bloom.

This replica of an old dynasty Chinese Garden was a surprise. Located right in the heart of the City, it is a complete escape once you enter within. Join the tour for a full appreciation of the history and traditions of these family gardens. I put this one in the not to be missed category.

This garden in the Old Town area is a peaceful oasis compared to the bustle of the city around it. The pamphlet they handed out with it was pretty amazing too, explaining all the symbols and things of cultural importance.

Sometimes I like to go on Thursday or Friday of the month here to do the Tai Chi or Qigong free with admission. The garden is a city block big but is small looking on the outside but we always tend to spend quite a long time walking through it. And it's lovely to go to The Tea House and... More

It is hard to believe that such a beautiful and serene place exist in the middle of a city. It is amazing that you can't hear any city noises once inside the walls. A place you should not miss. You only need and hour or two to visit. Thne go one block and get on the Big Pink Sightseeing Bus.

The buildings are surrounded by so many lovely plants and water spots. We sat a few times and soaked in the beauty and calm.

It looks pretty small from outside, but once you enter it's like a different world. Loved the architecture and the quiet there!

This block of downtown Portland is an oasis from the busy city that surrounds it. The tea house is great for a break but every step is a visual surprise and a wonderful balm for our busy lives.

The Lan Su Chinese Garden is located in the center of China Town in Portland, and it truly is a paradise in the middle of the city. Perfectly maintained, this tranquil garden is breathtaking.
