After the Japanese garden, the city of Portland is also home to a magnificent Chinese garden.

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.

Lan Su Chinese Garden, Portland Reviews - Write a Review
One of the most beautiful places in Portland. It looks quite small from the outside, but packs a big punch. There is beautiful scenery, artwork and architecture. There's also a nice place to sit and have tea, cookies and other assorted snacks in an authentic tea house. At night they light lanterns and have multicolored lights for a lot of the scenery which changes the feel of the whole place. I would recommend going in the daytime and staying till the sun goes down. There is also a parking garage one block away.
One of the most beautiful places in Portland-- maybe the world. Go outside of tourist season, and it's an oasis of calm in the middle of down town. The garden-- and the tea house inside-- engage all five senses very vividly. Even on rainy days, it's gorgeous. The designers thought about how the rain would sound falling from the eaves when they built it, and brilliant orange persimmons lend color even in the dead of winter.
If I lived here I'd be a member. Absolutely worth the $10 admission fee for this beautiful and serene oasis in historic downtown Portland. Guided tours are available or just meander through on your own, taking in the plants, architecture, and large koi pond populated by a variety of fish (some 30 years old!). They feed the fish, many of whom have names, 3x per day which is a fun way to learn more about these beautiful creatures. When I was there they had a live poetry reading and painting demonstration, but the tea house was closed.
Absolutely amazing spot to spend an hour or two to relax in a very serene environment. The flowers, Koi pond, traditional Japanese architecture make this spot a great place to walk around and enjoy the scenery. They also had a special flower exhibition going on and they had workshops for floral designs as well.
This place is just astonishing. It is a whole block inside of the place. It is tranquility in the sanctuary for a king. You must go and take your family to see this there is also on store for gifts inside that is just wonderful. It'll be a memory that you'll talk about for years inside of a block that you didn't even really know was there. When I got inside and seeing the size of it I was amazed. How they fit all that beauty in a square block. It's roomy it's fun and it's learning experience every family should have. This is truly one of Portland's finest establishments to go see.
