Quite private garden

Delightful place for quiet reflections. They apparently put on Chinese opera shows here still. Definitely worthwhile visiting when you go to this water town

After our short ride on the river through Zhujiajiao Ancient Town we stopped at the Kezhi Garden for a short visit. It is a small garden with a museum showing some rooms of the early time. To visit the garden and the little museum it will take a little bit more than an hour. Depending the time of the year... More

The Zhujiajiao Kezhi Garden is literally the only part of the town that is worth seeing. You can get some great pictures here. It is nice and peaceful and smells of fresh air...very different than the rest of the town and of Shanghai itself.

This garden is huge and very beautiful, lots of different parts, decoration, vegetation, tiny bridges, furniture and curious objects to see. But it could be in a much better shape. It needs restoration for sure. Nevertheless, it's worth a visit.

The garden is man made so there are little spots everywhere for kids of all ages. There are rock formations that you can climb and caves to walk into, a fish pond where you can feed the fish, in warmer weather they hold plays. And if you are visiting you must see Chen Nan-jun, the worlds best paper-cut artist. His... More

When you compare the Zhujaijaio Kezhi Garden with others that are in China, it pales into insignificance. It is still a beautiful garden though and worth a visit.

These gardens are so tranquil and peaceful. A beautiful getaway from all the hustle and bustle in Shanghai! Very historical and a lovely venue for performances such as Chinese Opera! Highly recommend!

In China context, this is rather quiet and not crowded spot. Easy to move around without squeezing around. I would say this is an average garden if you compared it with those gardens in Suzhou.

A very nice garden with plants, ponds and everything else that a Chinese courtyard cannot be without. It's calm and a very nice and welcome escape from the massive crowds that you'll definitely encounter in Zhujiajiao. Have a rest in the bat pavilion (so named because the word "bat" contains a homonym of the word for "luck"). Look at the... More

A visit to the Garden to watch Peony Pavillion Opera in the evening. The platform is outside in the garden. Was there in October and the temperature was mild at about 55 to 60 degrees. There is a subtitle video monitor to explain the lnaguage used in the opera.
