Worth visiting in a free time. Very beautiful place to take pictures especially in a good weather. It's a good stop during longer trip because its not the spot to spend all day in.

景點充滿舊日情懷,特別適合詩人前往,很有情調,這裡會舉辦藝術展覽,非常精采。入場劵也是購物優惠劵。非常建議花1小時參觀,半小時坐下感受寧靜。 Attractions filled with feelings of the old days, especially for poets to go, great mood, there will be held art exhibitions, very good. Entry tickets are also shopping coupons. It is recommended to spend an hour to visit, half an hour to sit down...More

Came here for the history and heritage but was disappointed. Not much information available and information on the walls was only available in mandarin so if you can't read Chinese it is difficult to understand much as the English brochure provided minimal content. It's a...More
