Chinese Garden Of Friendship

Sometimes, peace and quiet are some things that we are constantly deprived of. Especially since everyone in the metro is busy taking part in the globalisation, the undeniable noise is everywhere that even when we’re about to sleep, this noise never leaves us.

Then when you decided to go on a holiday, you thought you can finally get your much deserved serenity, only to find out that the noise is still everywhere. It’s stressful, right? So how about getting to the rest peace and quiet on your trip to Sydney by visiting the Chinese Garden of Friendship?

Nestled within a bustling city, you will be amazed at the serenity this garden can bring to your mind and soul. Located in Pier Street in Darling Harbour, the garden is surrounded by the soothing greeneries from floors to walls that you will think of nothing else but relaxation and tranquillity. And though high rise buildings may still be seen from the inside, these won’t be a bother since everything inside the garden is enough to lock you up and make you feel at your most peaceful.

Combining the traditional philosophy and harmony of all the Chinese gardens, the Chinese Garden of Friendship is surrounded by lakes, waterfalls, pavilions, pathways, and exotic plants that would make it seem like you have travelled all the way back to the Ancient Chinese times. Feel yourself getting relieved of stress as you watch the koi carp in the lake and the willows slowly swaying in the cool breeze, all while you’re taking a sip of the Chinese tea that is served in the Teahouse inside the garden.

Constructed as a sign of friendship between Guangzhou, China and Sydney, the Chinese Garden of Friendship was a gift from China to Sydney when Australia celebrated its bicentenary in 1988. Numerous talented Chinese architects and gardeners merged to create this serene garden that is infused with the Taoist principle of Yin and Yang, the five elements of water, earth, fire, wood, and metal, and Qi, the central force of energy and life.

So visit this garden now and feel your much deserved peace.
