In October a wonderful cooperation between Sister cities, Montreal and Shanghai offer tourists and locals eye popping floral and lantern exhibits that take at least two hours to explore and enjoy!

The Gardens of Light seem like quite the experience, what with the Japanese and Chinese gardens featured with lit figures in the waters. However, in reality, it is just the Chinese Garden that has the light show, the pictures of which are prominently displayed on...More

Lots of amazing plants. Best part is the edible plants area-could have spent another hour or so there, but weather was turning cold and rainy.

WOW!!! Heard it was great...was not a lie. Lovely evening walk. A lot of various lit up characters and animals, birds. The ones on the water were the best as they reflected onto the water. Very unique and well done! So glad we went!

These gardens are very large and worth a few hours to visit. We only had a short time as flying out that day, but it was well worth it. These are numerous glass houses, and formal laid gardens. Don’t miss the Chinese Garden
