Lou Lim leoc Garden

Lou Lim leoc Garden is located in central Macau Peninsula, with an area of 1.78 hectares (about 4.4 acres). It is the only Suzhou style garden in Macau. It boasts elegant and peaceful scenes just south of the Yangtze River. This area is known as Jiangnan in Chinese. The Lou Lim leoc Garden enlisted in the top eight scenes of Macau in 1992.

Construction of Lou Lim leoc Garden by a wealthy merchant began in 1904 and continued until 1925. It was once the largest private garden in Macau as well as one of the top three beautiful gardens of Macau. This gave it the widespread popularity. After the merchant's fortunes dwindled, parts of the Lou Lim leoc Garden were gradually sold off. In early 1970s, the government of Macau obtained and restored the garden. In 1974, it was opened to the public.

The elaborately designed scenes in Lou Lim leoc Garden are entrancing. Upon entering, guests will find an old-time archway, followed by paths bordered with flowers and bamboos.

Qingcao Hall (Green Grass Hall) in the center of Lou Lim leoc Garden is the focal piece of architecture, and together with the marvelous pavilions, cloisters, ponds, bridges and rockeries, makes Lou Lim leoc Garden a tridimensional landscape picture. This hall is a masterpiece harmoniously blending Chinese and Western culture. The fence is bright scarlet, a color favored by Chinese, whereas the wall is painted in beige, a color favored by Portuguese. The corridor pillars are Gothic style, with European style engravings of white flower patterns at the top. During Sun Yat-sen's second visit to Macau in 1915, he stayed in this hall and met with many celebrities.

An elegant nine-turn bridge sits above the small pond in the front of the hall. In the centre of the pond stands stone figure of an ancient-time beauty. Stream water pours from the rockery top down to the pond, creating wonderful waterfalls. There are crowds of fish playing about under lotus leaves in the pond. Many visitors enjoy sitting on stone stools in the shade under the weeping willows and looking into the pond. There visitors can enjoy a nice rest and take in the beautiful scenes.

Ur hotel at Rua de Francisco Xavier Pereira is within 5-8min walking from the garden. After that, you can visit other places in this order:
macao museum - the ruins and monte fort - senado square (all of them can be reached by walking)
Then follow this order: A-ma Temple - venetian - ferry terminal for ferry to HK

From Senado Square, you can walk to Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro to take bus no. 10 (3.2MOP)or 10A to A-ma Temple. After visiting, take bus no. 21A (I remember it is 4.2MOP) to the Venetian. Upon seeing the venetian, walk to the nearby City of Dreams to take the free shuttle bus to the Maritime Ferry Terminal!

You hotel is very close to the AV.INFANTE D. HENRIQUE, so you can walk there to take bus 26A to reach PRAA FERREIRA AMARAL, then you need to walk about 100 meters to reach AV. LISBOA to take bus 9A to get there.
