The garden is large, clean and full of life since local people use it not only for walk, but also for Tai Chi, dancing etc. There is also a little lake where you can hire a pedal boat and a corner serves as amusement park.

Our hotel was located in the Botanical Garden so we walked it for three days in a row. The garden itself is nicely laid out with a variety of areas themed with different plant species. It is very active/busy in the evenings with exercise classes,...More

The gardens are about a 15 minute walk from the main Guilin Railway Station. The guide map and everything else are in Chinese, so not much use to non-Chinese speakers. The grounds were pleasant enough, with some flowering trees and lawns where families picnicked, but...More
