Relax and reflect as a trained docent guides you around the Garden enhancing your experience.

Believe it or not, feng shui isn’t just just how you arrange your sofa in relation to your TV.
Learn about yin and yang and watch how much we have in common with the people from the Ming Dynasty (hint: recycling!)

With the rich information provided by the tour, you will understand the history and significance behind each Garden element such as the weathered rocks, jade green pond, mystical plants and stunning architecture.

After the tour savour a cup of hot Chinese tea and try your hand at the ancient art of calligraphy.

A TripAdvisor reviewer says:
“…a small but gorgeous adventure, full of large and happy koi fish and frogs! You forget you’re in the city!”

“Meet Me in Venice” by Suzanne Ma

Book launch :
Sun. March 8, 2015
from 2pm – 4pm

Photo exhibit:
Tue. March 3 – Sun. April 5, 2015

Join award-winning journalist Suzanne Ma for Italian appetizers at the Garden and be among the first to view Suzanne’s photo exhibition – a rare and exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the Chinese immigrant experience in Europe, which is also the subject of her new compelling book.

Through groundbreaking journalism, Suzanne Ma approaches the question as to why Chinese people choose to immigrate to nations where they endure hardship, suspicion, manual labor and separation from their loved ones in this dynamic story. Meet Me in Venice provides a personal, intimate account of Chinese individuals in the act of migration. The subtle, complex portrait of the growing Chinese diaspora particularly in Europe, is an unforgettable story of struggle, perseverance and survival.

Suzanne’s work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, the Huffington Post, and Salon.
