  • It's really nice place. Park with theme section and place unmarked on the maps, what sometimes can nicely surprise. I wish to give 5 stars but unfortunately I don't like one things. We have to pay for entrance to this garden and later again pain for entrance to glasshouse (what's worth, but not cheap if we have to pay twice). For me the best greenery place in Guangzhou what I've visited. I added price "board" photo.
  • Really beautiful! Great place to go relax or go for a long walk.
