  • in this place you can see beautiful landscape and lots of greenery. it is worthy of those 40chinese yuan that you spend in the entry.  more »
  • Very nice big park in the city. Entrance 40ju, preferential categories of 20th (we were lucky and made the 20th as students without checking documents). Park have many entrances, we went to the East and spared somewhere over 1/10 4:00. Many mountain trails with beautiful views, on one of the mountains found a statue of the Buddha. Bucket of water in the "wild" parts of the Park to buy her nowhere, and after an intensive recovery drink very much. The place is definitely worth a visit.

  • Xiamen Botanical Garden located at the Tiger Park Park forest road, distance view little bit far, inconvenient. Scene or landscape is beautiful, and the Park is very large, can slowly around, likes edge friends can come.

  • 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 :)
  • 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
  • Big Nice garden with a large variety of plants from all over the world. Only some areas still remain damaged after a Typhoon visited 6 months ago.
  • 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
  • Nice botanical garden
