  • This place is great! Saw many European tourists around and very calming. You could watch fish swim around, look at the different rocks in the rock museum, or just have some magnificent food! The place is almost completely FREE if you don't buy anything or go eat anything! Flowers, which many are blooming with life, are growing on the gorgeous treetops of the rare Chinese traditional trees and the smell of the fresh chilly water would make you feel just like in the wilderness. Look at the photos below:
  • A relaxing garden to spend an hour or more in depending on how slow you want to roll. There was a very cool architecture building that showed the design of the Chi Lin Nunnery as well as some cool buildings in China. There were plenty of touristy things to do including a traditional tea house, a vegetarian restaurant, and a small tea cafe with small eats. The waterfall was probably my favorite part as you could see a small rainbow when the sun was shining on it.
