The garden is more a park than a garden. I think it is best to spend at least half a day there during the weekend, then you can also watch the locals and have nice walks. It is a great place to relax.

I will go to botanic garden to almost every city I visited, home or abroad. WBG's fulll name is: the Wuhan Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is pretty wild garden compared with other botanic garden in western countries, as you will not see too many staff working in the garden most of the time. WBG boasts... More

We took bus no 402 from our hotel doorstep in Jianghan Road to WBG doorstep. The bus ride cost cny2, took about 1 hr and was packed with local mainlanders. Wuhan Botanical garden, founded in 1956, occupies 70 hectares of land and serves as a main scientific research centre, plant conservatory centre and public education centre. Entrance fee is CNY40....

We went there last week and it was beauttiful as the flowers were all bloomed. A bit crowed over the weekend. The way to the garden is crowded so please be prepared to walk if you head there during weekends. Getting a cab back from the garden to where ever you are going too can be tricky.

A good array of plants, though I was hoping to see more things that might be unique to the region, or Asia in general - I always enjoy botanical garden and this was no different

Worth every penny of the entrance fee. Be prepared to spend some time wondering around the different areas. They have an indoor orchid garden which is beautiful as well as a desert biome themed house. The gardens are extensive so bring your walking shoes!

Visited mid-week in late March. The acres and acres of Spring blossoms with under plantings of wild flowers were so beautiful. Of course there were crowds, but friends of mine had visited the University Gardens days before and said that the crowds were much worse at the Uni. I found the rest of the Gardens were much less striking, but... More

Anything you see here will be ruined by the poor behaviour of the local people. You will see people spit and shoot wads of phlegm from their mouth and nose at surprising speeds. You will be pushed and shoved, you will here screaming kids and people talk at inconsiderate volumes on their cell phones! yay!

Visited the Botanical Garden here in Wuhan. The grounds were quiet and the scenes amazing. Saw many different species of flowers and found many Pictures worthy and a couple just spectacular. Spring is best time but it was almost empty the day I went. Enjoyable best describes this trip. See for yourself.

Firstly, I should say that Autumn is not the best time to visit any botanical garden, but we were pleasantly surprised by the roads and paths going off in all directions, allowing one to escape from the crowds (there are always crowds - this is China) into woodland and garden. The site is located on East Lake, and on the... More
