  • 在樓外樓旁的孤山公園一眼看去覺得很大,裡面還有一座小山丘,不過走到山丘前就知道那就是主要景點結束之處。然而就在小山之前的這一塊以假山接真山的景還是不錯的。去的是秋季,桂花香透。 
  • It's what climbing to the top, but the view makes it worth it. You look beautiful over the Lake. On the mountain itself are also some small attractions.

  • 人少,有很多观湖的座位,私密性好又安静。 植被覆盖面积很大,一点点蒙蒙细雨惬意。 孤山公园特别僻静,坐在湖边超舒服! 适合夫妻情侣来。
