Amazing quiet and peaceful gardens. I only had a short amount of time and it was not enough as the pathways kept going with beautiful bridges in the maze of the garden. This is a hidden gem. Watch the entrance you come in as it was easy to get turned around. Loved this place and wish I had found the... More

This garden was beautiful! I felt like I was swept away to China in the 1600s. Well worth seeing especially if you can spare 2 hours walking around. Many gardens ads similar so it's best to find one easy to get to and away from many people - this one would be it. And if you walk 10 mins further... More

Unfortunatly we arrived there late, around 17 and they didn't wanted to sell tickets(12rmb/person) but we insisted that 1 hour will be enough for us to walk and see it. Ofcourse you need more time, but maybe for another time specially because the bonsai garden was closed at that time, no ideea why and how long. Definatly worth seeing, specially... More

Great place to visit in the morning (or later afternoon) for 3-4 hours than to head over to Nanxiang ancient town for some xiaolongbao! the garden costs 12 rmb to enter. Best times to go are spring through fall when many things are blooming. This... More

Take the 11 metro, Nanxiang stop and go up the escalator to exit. Cross over bridge to get to #2 bus. 1st stop is just before entrance. The restaurant for the area origin dumplings is just past the entrance and we ordered #1 & #2 (as recommending in another review about the picture less menu) pork and crab dumplings that... More

You can get here through line 11 exit 2, walk downstairs to street level, around the bus terminal left to Zhongjia Rd, Left on Zhennan Rd, and turn right to Huyi Hwy till you get to the garden. It's advice to have the Xiao Long Bao first before entering the garden which my friends and I did and it was... More

We easily spent most of a day wandering throughout this beautiful garden and were rewarded by the peaceful surroundings and friendly locals. Even though packed with people, it is so large it never felt crowded or uncomfortable. A fantastic way to spend a beautiful day--I highly recommend it!

Located 21 Km from city Centre it is on the Metro Line 11 Nanxiang. Next to the Garden entrance there is a restaurant where they serve the best dumplings in... More
