(4.5/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Set in the Wanshi Mountains, Xiamen Botanical Garden represents one of the most distinct (and popular) gardens in southern China. Over 20 botanical zones featuring over 6,300 varieties of tropical and subtropical plants span some 5 sq km (1.9 sq mi), offering a number of hiking trails. A 25-minute cable car ride and a large observation deck provide views of Wanshi Lake and scenic spots within the gardens. Stroll the grounds, or rent a golf buggy to help get around. Highlights include notable collections of cacti, succulent plants, and rainforest vegetation. Xiamen Botanical Garden is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Xiamen Edition.

  • 虽然门票大人40元,学生半价,感觉很值,比北京的那个植物园不知要好多少。 公园依山而建,面积很大,时间允许可以安排一整天。我们一家三口,用了整整半天的时间,只是看了一部分。 看过的景点里面,强烈推荐沙生植物区,那儿有很多非常奇特的植物;科普馆,有很多的植物知识介绍;热带雨林,喷雾系统打开以后,感觉很奇妙;如果喜欢书法,那新碑林一定要去,在自然的奇石上有大师和名人书刻,如弘一法师,启功。
