After the Japanese garden, the city of Portland is also home to a magnificent Chinese garden. At a short distance from the waterfront lies the beautiful Lan Su Chinese Garden which is the largest Suzhou style garden outside the country of China. The garden does complete justice in its attempt to reflect an authentic Chinese garden. The charm of the garden is credited to its lovely blooming flowers, varied and rare plant species, the elite tea house, stone, art, buildings, water, koi, dragonflies and the peace and tranquility emitted by the calm atmosphere in there. Unwind from the day’s chaos by indulging in a pleasant visit to the Lan Su Chinese Garden.

A hidden away Asian garden in the heart of China Town that has a wonderful atmosphere. There's a wonderful tea shop that serves excellent tea and a small selection of Asian bites. The Garden is a great place to relax, grab a cup of tea, and go for a lazy stroll! It's open year around, and is worth a visit if you find yourself in the neighborhood. Love the architecture and atmosphere of this garden! :D
Garden is pretty and we visited on a rainy day. Well manicured and the people here volunteering do a great job explaining the history. Seems like the staff likes each other and everyone is working hard to make sure the place is warm and well kept. Beautiful lanterns and plants and intricate design for the floors, tiles, and buildings.
Although small, this is a lovely hideaway in the middle of downtown Portland. I would not recommend rushing through, taking selfies, and moving on. Instead, slowly move through the gardens and appreciate the fine lines and subtle art in the careful arrangements of architecture and plant life. I also think stopping in h the tea House adds to the experience. It can only be as serene as it's visitors, so each person must seek out their own quiet for the sake of all.
Nice garden to see some Chinese architecture. However, it is a relatively compact one and you can see the whole garden and take photos in less than 45 minutes. The ticket price for the garden was $10 for adults. They had free tours every hour. The guide will describe the philosophy behind some of the structures in the garden. The tea shop was good. As you may expect, it was a bit overpriced. I got a mung bean cookie ($6) and bamboo tea ($5) and I liked both.
I was expecting the gardens to be larger. It would be beautiful in the summer. But it was beautiful even in January. The walkways were very stunning. I would recommend everyone who has a chance to go see it.
