“fairy lake”(11 reviews)
Also known as Fairy Lake Botanical Gardens, this massive, verdant escape has lots to offer even if you are not a botanical buff. A popular pastime among locals is to rent a boat and explore the lake.

This park has it all. Petrified trees, cactus rooms, bonzai garden, ponds, hillsides, the list goes on and on. Definitely worth checking out if you're ever in Shenzhen.

It's the best Botanical garden I've ever visited. The best time to go is in winter, as you can spend the whole day walking without sweating. Good for hiking trip, family trip or even solo. Better to bring you lunch and bottles of water

We went today and didn't see everything but I'm sure they'll like the Cacti Garden and the tower. And there's probably much more to see.
