As you walk around this beautiful Botanical Garden, you will surely find your way to this amazing Guo's Garden. Its really beautiful and the area is really tranquil and clean. Best to find a suitable parking space and then walk around the area.

The crowds thin out considerably beyond the Su Causeway in Hangzhou, and the 10RMB admission fee thins them out a bit more at this tranquil little oasis. A private garden surrounding two ponds which also has a private aspect on to the lake. A beautiful...More
