  • South China Botanical Garden-the perfect place to relax (and even for meditation). On the vast territory of the park there is a place to relax on the grass, to meditate in solitude. But most importantly, a great number of plants and flowers just boggles the imagination. Visitors in the Park was a bit in November. Weather great in November (+14-+20 (maximum)). Aroma mixed with sweet autumn aromas of flowers. A great place for families, children and lovers of nature. How I got a lot of buses go from the Metro station. At reception asked Metro station and made a sign with the name of the garden in the Chinese language. How to sit on the bus, show the driver and it will take you to the correct stop. Drivers, and most Chinese don't speak English. Self made decals assisted travel far beyond Guangzhou, when the signs have already run out of letters and signs remain only with Chinese characters.

  • Excellent clean and well-kept Park. Come better in the morning and plan the trip for a day because the Park is quite large and a couple of hours it is very difficult to get around, besides constantly wants to stay and sit, look at nature. Be sure to pay for visiting pavilions with rare plants-beautiful and interesting. Inside the park there is a good vegetarian restaurant-dining room. If you want to eat more exquisitely, go to a restaurant, and if you want to just eat, in the dining room for you to enjoy a buffet breakfast with lots of dishes for only 28 yuan per person. They open for dinner in the 17:30.

  • If you have time and you are not indifferent to the world of plants-a must see is the Chinese miracle. Chic open-air collection of orchids, palms, ferns, nymphaeum, the different alien species. Spring (February-March) you can admire 150 kinds of flowering rhododendrons! But in any season is a super garden!
