Treasure Garden - Pan Yu 番禺宝墨园

China (348)

It was plain surprises on how beautiful this place is when we first arrived here.

Set in a remote place at Pan Yu (30km away from Guang Zhou), and next to slumpy industrial neighbourhood, Treasure garden is indeed a secret garden known only to the locals!

We paid like only RMB30(USD8) to get in. Once in the garden ground, we were greated by lakes, ponds and rivers filled with huge looking kois everywhere.

The whole place is newly built it seems, but of convervative architectures similar to rich man's mansion of late manchurian dysnasty.

The cafeteria near the large wall drawing sell great bargain foods e.g. noodles, dessert. Do try the steam milk pudding dessert that is a speciallity here (RMB4 per bowl). You can take away the instant powder mix as well and make your own whenever you want (RMB15 for 5 packets). Also available is the ginger flavor and almond flavor version

It is just great to relax around here for a day, especially on a sunny cold morning like this.
