Fairy Lake Botanical Gardens Shenzhen

Fairly Lake is a beautiful scenic nature spot in Shenzhen, well worth a day out of exploration. Aside from the Hongfa Temple, there are endless attractions for the family, museums, botanical gardens, a lake, pagodas and much more. You can easily wonder around for hours.

Here’s from their official website :

The Fairy Lake Botanical Garden in the eastern suburbs of Shenzhen City is situated at 22º34′ N, 114º10′ E and covers an area of 590 hectares. The garden was established in 1982 with 15 plant sections planned. At present, the palm grove and two other plant collections have been planted, and more than 8,000 species are in cultivation. The Fairy Lake Botanical Garden is developing into a centre for conservation and research of plant resources in South China.

 

I was very lucky to catch a beautiful sunny day with lovely cloud in a pollution-free sky.
