  • The entrance costs 40 CNY, but if you are a student costs you half. This garden is huge, with charming spots. It was built in 1984 as a reproduction of the idyllic gardens of the novel "The Red Chamber dream" of case Xueqin. It is a beautiful example of Chinese classical gardening. Enjoy of sophisticated gardens of rocks, ponds villages of flowers of Lotus, tours covered, bridges and pavilions. We throw away there all the morning. Ideal for a sunny day.

  • For the price of ¥40, there isn't much to see. The place is badly maintained. Not much is being mentioned at all regarding the characters from the novel "Chamber Of the Red Mansion". So basically you are just strolling in another garden which you could actually do it for free. Most business in the premises were closed.
  • I and my nine year old daughter enjoyed this place. She thinks this is the best place in Beijing (she has watched the TV series more than 10 times).
  • 没来过
  • 在夏天快要结束的时候,乘着同程网1元门票的夏风,就过去走了一遭,在吴中吴江和上海的交界处,确实不用走高速也很方便的到了,里面的园子占地很大,据说是拍了电影版的红楼梦的地方,按照曹雪芹书中描绘的大观园建造,亭台楼阁,湖光熠熠,湖面上还有不少荷花和睡莲,很是风景不错,人不是很多,玩的也很舒心,听了导览车的介绍大概知道了一二,很值得去的地方。
  • 去的时候感觉自己就是个刘姥姥,特别好看的园林设计,就是太大了,那天很累
