  • I didnt get in to the garden. But from outside it was really nice. You have to pay 40 yuan to get in and youll get a special slipper, a map and a guide book about the garden. It need special slipper because it has several special tree or flower. I really want to get in there when Im going to xiamen again :)
  • It was in China. The place was so clean and no trash anywhere. The other tourists were friendly. I enjoyed seeing the plants and only regretted not knowing the name of each one
  • Once you enter the gate, all bustle of the city is gone. A good area to relax, make a walk, and enjoy the beautiful nature
