About the Tour

A walk at the Nan Lian Garden is more than a physical exercise or a tourist mission. It is a journey through the six senses, and you will be invited to explore it by seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching, and thinking. In this tour, Michaela and Tian will not only show you around this Tang Dynasty style garden, but also share the stories and philosophy behind its beauty.

Best time of day

The garden is open from 7 am to 9 pm every day. The galleries, restaurants and shops are open for a shorter time during the day. The garden is less busy in the morning and evening, but is a place of peace and quiet in general.


Because of the precious old trees in the garden, no eating or drinking is allowed in public area. The rubbish might attract insects, which can damage the trees. But there are places where you can go inside to enjoy refreshments.
