Awe inspiring! Collaboration between the gardens and China. We went with 5 friends from Maine. Such a joy to share. You must book in advance for a time to visit.

Beautiful light decorations, makes it a magical experience. You can even have a mini picnic on the grass. If you like butterflies, don’t miss the collection at the insectarium.
