The Chinese Garden's concept is based on Chinese gardening art. The main characteristic is the integration of splendid architectural features with the natural environment. The Chinese Garden is modelled along the northern Chinese imperial style of architecture and landscaping. The garden is a functional showcase of stunning Chinese structures such as rainbow bridges, arch buildings, stone boats, tea house and pagodas.

The Garden's other attraction includes:

    Bonsai Garden

    This Suzhou-style Bonsai Garden houses a collection of some 1,000 bonsais imported mostly from China. It is a wonder that must be seen to be believed. There are also resident Bonsai experts who will teach visitors how to prune and care for Bonsais and appreciate the beauty of this unique artistry.

    Garden of Abundance

    You will find 100-year-old pomegranate trees from Shantung, China, planted alongside sculptures of the 12 Chinese Zodiac animals. This creative concept of planting materials, which represent longevity, abundance and fulfillment, is designed according to Chinese tradition and folk culture.
