  • I have no doubt that the Botanical Garden is not worse than other parks in China. The difference is not only in the fact that it is charged. We have not got to the Park, so as not to have brought pamporta. And easily accessible: Metro station is called Botanical Garden-line 6, station 11.

  • Very spacious and enjoy the seasonal flowers, but admission is too high. Of the greenhouse, but bad timing or in not so good. In bloom every season to enjoy throughout the year. Well worked try early blooming information.

  • The place had a really good variety of plants and flowers but none of them really stand out. There was only 1 place where you could actually see what kind of plant it was.
  • I spent an hour walking around the botanical garden and didn't find it to be that amazing. The park wasn't well maintained. Compared to the Xianhu Botanical Gardens in Shenzhen, it was a big disappointment. If you're into gardening or enjoy nature, the Xianhu Botanical Gardens in Shenzhen is definitely worth a visit. The park itself is a 30 minute car ride from the center of Guangzhou and is probably not worth going to unless you're passing by it to visit another attraction.
  • This place might be beautiful before but not anymore, everything there is dead.
  • Great place to visit with many nice sceneries
  • A nice place for biking and walking. There are many beautiful plants that you may never see before.
