A serene respite from the towering urban sprawl nearby, this traditional Chinese garden was based on the design of the famous Jiangshouju Garden in Shanxi Province. Winding paths lead visitors past pines, cypress and fragrant flowering trees. There are artificial hillocks, ornamental rocks, waterfalls and koi ponds, with a striking gilded pagoda and a pair of arched red wooden bridges, which are the focal point of a lotus pond. Linger longer by visiting the teahouse on-site.
