Photographer's Note

Built in 1975 and designed by Prof. Yuen-chen Yu, a well-known architect from Taiwan, the Chinese Gardenís concept is based on Chinese gardening art.
This pleasant and spacious garden portrays the Imperial Sung Dynasty style and echoes the grandeur of the Beijing Summer Palace.
It has bridges, pagodas with excellent views, a stoneboat, a teahouse and other scenic spots. The latest attraction is a Penjing Garden "Yun Xiu Yuan" housing the Chinese Garden's collection of Penjing .
Penjing is the Chinese art of creating a miniature landscape in a container. The word consists of the two parts: "pen" - "pot" or "container", and "jing" - "scenery". An artist may use plant material and natural stone to portray an idylllic mountain retreat with a murmuring brook or a waterscape with a lush tropical island. Or he or she may design a much simpler scene where one single tree makes up the entire composition.
