It is a nice garden, but nothing really exceptional to justify the long metro ride there. Took me 45 minutes from Xujiahui to Nanxiang on line 11. There is a very good playground inside for kids. To make it right, you should visit this garden...More

There were not many historical building but many trees and plants, which I loved so much. It is a relaxing place that worth spending time if you love plants like me.

Much bigger than Yuyuan Gardens. Some good examples of Ming and Qing style buildings. Lots of water and bridges. Took about 2 hours. Takes about 90 minutes from East Nanjing metro station for the train and 15minute walk to the garden.

Although it takes a little while to get there, it's is worth it. It's absolutely beautiful and you can completely forget that you're in a major city. Lovely walks through various gardens, buildings and water features.

We couldn't be luckier than going to visit this beautiful place when the water lilies were blooming. The park is really big with beautiful pavilions and ponds everywhere. The best time to go is early in the morning to avoid the midday heat.

It is not easy to find the entry to the garden, although it has two. But both on the opposite side to the metro station. But it is nice, if you like the typical Chinese garden architecture, you will enjoy it. Unfortunately, all signs only...More
