This is a very big space and if I'm not wrong, there's this big square right at the beginning. Subsequently there's some classic small Chinese bridges connecting. Look around and it's very scenic with mountain and the giant Buddha on the background.

Worth stopping if you're in the area, but I wouldn't recommend detouring hours out of your way. There's an immense statue of Buddha and some other grand architecture, The water show is a bit goofy. Just be aware that this is all a recent installation;...More
