This is a hidden little refuge in the busy city. It is designed to encourage to take your time and enjoy the different areas. The tours are very informative of the idea behind it, and the history of the time period it was modeled after....More

Other than the plant life, everything was imported from China. The structures are so impressive, all put together without nails. If you want a good foot massage, walk barefoot on the walkways. Most areas were wheelchair accessible which was great because I went there with...More

The Lan Su Chinese Garden is a wonderful place to relax for a couple of hours. The tour was definitely worth taking; lots of interesting stories and explanations about the garden and its construction. The tea house was also a nice stop.

Lan Su is a beautiful traditional Chinese garden, so like the lovely gardens in China. It is compact and easy to navigate. The buildings, ponds, waterfall, and gardens are restful and serene. We enjoyed tea and sweets in the teahouse and recommend that.

We had a great guide who told us all about the garden, how it would have been used by a Chinese scholar, and how Portland got its own 12 million dollar city block replica. It was much nicer than I thought and it was much...More

We liked the garden. It is well laid out and very cool. It was a lot smaller than we anticipated. After we finished it felt like a lot of money for the time spent.

This was a nice, quiet morning spot to unplug and enjoy the sights and sounds of a true Chinese garden. Lots of beautiful greenery, unique architecture, and there is even a teahouse to enjoy snacks and tea accompanied by authentic Chinese music. While it was...More
