Fodor's Review

With more than 60 varieties of bamboo, this lovely garden is so named because the characteristic 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 avenues, note the loose bricks in the path arranged to clack under your footsteps. The garden is also accessible from an entrance on Dongguan Jie.
