Ge Garden

Yangzhou's other famous garden spot is Ge Garden. It was privately owned by a salt merchant and epitomizes the Yangzhou garden style even more than does Shouxi Lake. Its rockeries are exceptionally outstanding.


Shouxi Lake is slightly over 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) in length.


Shouxi Lake means "Slender West Lake". This is a competitive reference to the roundish West Lake in Huangzhou (also a Hillman Wonder).

Nearest major city

Yangzhou is about 150 kilometers (90 miles) northeast of Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu province.
