The lake of the Immortals Botanical Gardens is Shenzhen’s most beautiful park and surely one of the most beautiful in China. It sprawls over miles of foothills, valleys, rivers and lakes before climbing half way up Wutong Mountain. Main attraction is the Hong Fa Temple (see entry above) but there are beautiful and peaceful lakes surrounded by tea-houses and pavilions which could inspire great poetry. Don’t miss the azalea garden, the petrified forest, the paleontology museum or the medicinal plants garden 20RMB. 7 am to 10 pm.
