It was peaceful. It was calm, and I could just escape from the Central Business District through this garden. The teahouse was an enjoyable experience and simply sitting in and exploring the pavilion were so empowering. I don't know why, but I felt very at peace whenever I just sat down and admired the Chinese-style architecture. The artworks, sculptures, and Chinese traditional flora are very memorable. The signs next to each feature were very informative of their history and origin.
A beautiful garden set up that reflects the scenery seen in China. It was a great experience to go there with friends but beware the water is very murky and if you plan on looking at the fishes under the water, you probably won't be able to see it with great clarity. However, you just want to have a look at the buildings or just want to be distracted for about 1.5 hours or so, this would be a nice place to do that.
Little piece of paradise in the heart of a busy city. So quiet and peaceful and they have put a lot of effort into the gardens. So many awesome photo opportunities, and there's also the option of a tea ceremony and wearing traditional clothes. Keep an eye out for the horoscopes hidden around the garden!
What a beautifully curated garden! Sure it costs a couple of dollars to get in but it is worth it. It has an easy to follow path that let's you take in all of the awesome flora and fauna living there, while providing a few seats here and there so you can really drink it all in. A must see if you are in the area!
Great place to visit. Clean, well maintained and peaceful garden. Friendly staff. Nice place to sit down and have a cup of tea.
