We went for an activity that was crowded and it was still pretty special. I'm excited to go back on a less crowded day.

Lan Su fast became a favorite of Portland's residents and visitors as soon as it was finished. Set on a block near the Waterfront in the old Chinatown of the city, once you are inside you are truly in an oasis. Take your time and...More

One of the nicest gardens I have ever enjoyed! The surprise is its location, right in the middle of a city; very unexpected!! Everything was interesting and perfectly groomed! I would love to return someday!

Short on time, we made an executive decision to punt on traveling all the way to the Japanese Garden (we were relying on public transit), and opted for a visit to the more accessible Lan Su Chinese Garden. What a lovely spot! Docent led tours...More

I had a nice time wandering through the gardens. The tour guide was helpful so we could appreciate what we were looking at. Even in the winter there was a lot of greenery.

Surprised by how small the garden was, but I guess better small than none at all in the middle of a bustling city. Overall, I wouldn't go out of the way as it's not nearly as impressive as the Japanese garden.

A calm, tranquil harbor in the heart of Chinatown. The tea house serves very good dumplings and such.
