Good for a long and relaxing walk. If you dont mind walking, I think you can skip the tourist bus. High entrance fee (100 yuan), but to me it was worth it.

If you have very limited time, do visit, but if you have the time to go to the Menglun Gardens- about 1 1/2 hours out of the city, do so

Very nice place to visit. The best attraction, in fact. Vivid gardens and plants of all sorts. Deserves a full day visit. As usual in Mainland China parks - food inside parks is very limited and to the very low basics. Bring with you food...More
