My wife and I visited during Tomb Sweeping Day and it was packed. The garden was nice but was hard to get around with the amount of people crammed in. It was still enjoyable and I'm glad I went. It would have been nicer if...More

I went on a weekday, so the crowd wasn't too bad. There were many rocks that are on exhibition, and good that there are both Chinese and English explanations as well. The entrance fee was I think 30RMB.
