Plum Garden

Admission:

Hours:

Situated between Wuxi's rolling hills and the shores of magnificent Tai Lake (Tai Hu), the Plum Garden (Méi Yuán, 梅园) is a sprawling orchard that occupies a prime piece of scenic real estate.

There are over 5,000 plum trees in the park, mostly planted in the early 20th century, though a few rogue peach trees date back to the Qing Dynasty. A thoroughly pleasant spot to visit at at any time of year, the Plum Garden really hits its peak in spring when those thousands of tree burst into million pink blossoms as far as the eye can see. The best views of this blooming carpet of color can had at the Nianqu Pagoda (Niànqú Tǎ, 念劬塔), with the the great lake and misty mountains beyond creating one of eastern China's finest vistas.
