Nice setup with different theme. Try to avoid weekends as there is many locals taking wedding photo. You can either walk to all sections or take shuttle bus that cost you 10 , you may stop on each section and carry on to another garden

I went there in the morning. Not too many people, the place was big and quiet! But as a botanical garden, I expect to see more species!

Very nice botanical garden that includes monuments, sculptures, etc. honoring various provinces of China and their architectural heritage. Unfortunately, these sites are not peopled so there is no sense of how the flora and buildings related to their populations.

It was nice to spend some hours there but was a bit disappointed. Maybe because the September typhoon caused a lot of damage. Half of the park is hiking! And you can easily get lost as the maps isn't precise and there's a lack of...More
