Shuzhuang Garden

Admission:

RMB 30

Hours:

8am-6pm daily

How to get there:

On the southern shore of Gulangyu, across the island from the ferry pier. RMB 10 on any of the little buggy-taxis (no cars on the island) will get you there, but the journey is easily walkable.

The Shuzhuang Garden (Shūzhuāng Huāyuán, 菽庄花园) is located on the quaint island of Gulangyu, just a short ferry ride across the Lujiang Channel from Xiamen. The garden, which was once the private residence of a Taiwanese businessman, was originally constructed to recreate the feel of a garden residence found in Taiwan.

The grounds are filled with snaking paths that cross koi ponds, wind through rock sculptures and possess hidden sculptures of all 12 zodiac animals (can you find them all?). The garden is also home to Gulangyu's famous Piano Museum, a look at pianos through history, and a private art museum.
