This garden offers a wonderfully convenient retreat from the noise and crowds of the city. It's spread over 20 acres, with paths that wind through groves of bamboo and tropical trees to a series of classic teahouses. Here you can sit and enjoy a wide variety of Chinese teas brewed the traditional way. There are tables inside and on terraces that overlook the ponds. As for the orchids, the 10,000 pots are a magical sight when they are in bloom (peak time is May and June).
