Fodor's Review

With more than 60 varieties of bamboo, this garden is so named because the trio of leaves on a bamboo plant look like the Chinese character ge (个). There are yellow stalks, striped stalks, huge treelike stands, and dwarf bamboo with delicate leaves. The place was built by a wealthy salt merchant named Huang Zhiyun, who believed bamboo represented the loyalty of a good man. As you wander the quiet paths, note the loose bricks in the path arranged to clack under

your footsteps. The garden is also accessible from an entrance on Dongguan Jie.
