I visited the Garden at noon so the light was horrible for pictures. It was not very crowded, yet I felt like one would take more advantage of the place when no one is around. It is in fact a good place to getaway from the crowds outside and to breathe, hear and admire.

It is really interesting to spend an hour or two away from the crowd to enjoy the peaceful and beautiful garden

This is a quiet oasis in the middle of a very busy city. I visited with a guide and it was great to have detailed explanations of the many symbolic features of the garden

The gardens and waterscapes are beautiful, and walking across the bridges is great. The only problem is the crowds... there is considerable congestion. Never the less, this is well worth a visit. Nice place to have an alfresco lunch or drink.
