  • Great plants. The gardens cultivate 6,000 species of plant, including 2,000 kinds of trees and bushes, 1,620 varieties of tropical and subtropical plants, 500 species of flowers and 1,900 kinds of fruit trees, water plants, traditional Chinese. The hothouse exhibition is the highlight of the gardens. The first room is filled with evergreens and members of the palm family. The second room is given over to tropical aquatic plants, including water lilies and flowering taros. The third room displays commercial plants and their breeding and propagation. Here there are specimens of the triple-leaved rubber plant, cocoa and coffee trees and the sugar producing sweet-leaved chrysanthemum which has been introduced into China from abroad.
  • I visited the gardens in early April, as the flowers were blooming. A word of advice, don't go during the weekend, it's absolutely rammed. The highlight of the gardens is the lake. You can take a ride in a boat, they have pedal boats and boats with engines. Go for the pedal boats, get some exercise! You can man a boat by yourself but it's a lot of work. There is a small bridge you can steer the boat through. The water is clean and the scenery is great. I think it's 300 RMB for a 30 minute hire and 400 RMB for the engine powered boat. It's expensive compared to the fees you pay for many attractions in Beijing but definitely worth it.
