Like the surroundings. Lot of different landscapes, lot of paths. Despite our visit was during a weekend we were able to feel alone in the park. Huge green area. So calm, relaxing that you forget you're in the city of XX milion inhabitants! :) :)...More

The visit to the Botanical Garden was amazing. Kids loved the variety of flowers there and the garden is really well maintained and a perfect place to hang out if you are a nature lover.

We went there in March and it was marvelous. All trees and bushes were in blossom and the smell of Magnolias everywhere. The park, is big, clean and a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature.

Walked to the gardens from my hotel. Not an easy walk in the heat but the paths were good and gardens were clearly signposted. Admission was 10RMB (£1.20). The gardens are, quite simply, beautiful, a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of the shores...More
