This scenic area combines nature, architecture, and culture. The pond itself is filled with lotus plants which blooms every spring with pretty pink flowers. Nearby are three sets of impressive architecture, the most famous of which is the Dragon and Tiger Pagodas. Located near the water, the twin pagodas as well as the unique entrance and exit of the pagodas (you will enter through the mouth of the dragon and exit through the mouth of the tiger) make for the perfect photo opportunity. The lesser known Ciji Temple and Spring and Autumn Pavilions are spectacular as well.Stay about 1 hr 30 min
