This is a huge garden and you could spend about 1 1/2 hours here depending on how you go about it. Good for pictures and getting away from the busyness of the town if you want.

It is a nice garden, but nothing really exceptional to justify the long metro ride there. Took me 45 minutes from Xujiahui to Nanxiang on line 11. There is a very good playground inside for kids. To make it right, you should visit this garden...More

Much bigger than Yuyuan Gardens. Some good examples of Ming and Qing style buildings. Lots of water and bridges. Took about 2 hours. Takes about 90 minutes from East Nanjing metro station for the train and 15minute walk to the garden.

Although it takes a little while to get there, it's is worth it. It's absolutely beautiful and you can completely forget that you're in a major city. Lovely walks through various gardens, buildings and water features.
