Located at the central area of Taizhou City, Qiao Garden is a typical Chinese classical garden built during Ming Dynasty, 1500s. With over 500 years of history, Qiao Garden is regarded as the oldest classical garden within northern Jiangsu Province. Walking inside the garden, you’ll see exquisite gardens filled with all kinds of pavilions, houses, rockeries, ponds, and bonsais.
Hu Jintao, when he was a young boy, used to play here with friends after school. This garden is also where Mei Lanfang, China's most famous Beijing Opera actor lived for a few years.
The garden, once you visit and wander through it, seems like an oasis away from city life.
