Zhengzhu Spring (The Pearl Spring)

Address: 1 Yuanqian Avenue
Open all day.
Free of Charge
Buses: 1, 3, 101, 104. Get off at the Crown Plaza Shopping Center.

Are you fascinated by the name? The name is actually true, for the bubbles coming out of the bottom of the water look exactly like the pearls! The water then gathered and travels through the Baihua Zhou (Hundred-flower Chau), and run into Daming Lake. In the year 1466, a governor found the spring extremely beautiful, therefore he extended his garden so the spring could be part of it. There are also many scarce and old trees in the garden.

This is one of my favorite places. I usually hang out with my friends here. Especially because it is near the shopping area and big book stores, I always love to come here to enjoy the serene views after a day’s shopping.
