Directions to Chinese and Japanese Garden
The 13.5-ha garden, inspired by classical northern-Chinese architecture and designed by a well-known Taiwanese architect, was built in 1977. It is a beautiful and charming nature getaway and well visited during celebrations such as Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn.
Several attractions are located in the Chinese Garden, such as the 7-storey Pagoda and the Twin Pagodas, which are reproductions of the Beijing's Summer Palace. The two pagodas are very popular photo objects, especially for couples. Other sights include the beautiful teahouse and stoneboat, both surrounded by ponds, bridges, courtyards and perfectly manicured mini gardens.
The Bonsai Garden is the largest Suzhou-style bonsai garden outside of China and houses hundreds of striking bonsais, imported from many different countries. It is an impressive collection and well worth the walk from the main entrance.
Another highlight is the Garden of Abundance with magnificent stone sculptures depicting the 12 Chinese Zodiac Animals. Admire the 100-year old pomegranate trees from Shantun and the four auspicious bridges that represent prosperity, love, fertility and abundance.
On the grounds of the Chinese Garden is also a live Turtle and Tortoise Museum, home to over 200 turtles of over 60 different species. There is an extra entry price for the museum and an additional fee if you wish to feed the turtles. Turtles don’t seem to have much space with some exposed in terrariums without greenery or water. The place is in need of a thorough renovation and we wonder if the turtles wouldn’t be much happier in a more appropriate location.
Adjacent to the Chinese Garden is the Japanese Garden, connected by the grand Bridge of Double Beauty, transporting you into a world of tranquility, serenity and simplicity. This "Seiwaen" inspired garden is based on the Japanese garden concept of Zen and the Middle Ages with minimalist and abstract designs. Stone lanterns, rocks, arched bridges, lily-filled ponds and traditional summer houses are part of a picturesque landscape.
