Shenzhen Fairy Lake Botanical Garden
I am on a short business trip to Shenzhen and will have some free time on Saturday before catching the evening flight back to Singapore. I am very interested to visit the Fairy Lake Botanical Garden. Does another know how far it is from town. My hotel is in the Futian area. Is it easy to get a taxi from the garden back to town? What is the best mode of transportation? I need to check out from the hotel at 4pm.

Re: Shenzhen Fairy Lake Botanical Garden
I guess “Fairy Lake Botanical Garden” refers to 仙湖。
Anyway, it’s quite far from Futian area. Suggest to go there :
(1) by Taxi (expected taxi fees between CNY60-150) – strongly suggested, as you are not familiar with the local area. Could negotiate with the taxi driver with a fixed price. Suggest negotiating from a starting fare of around CNY50.
(2) by bus. There are some buses going there, depending on the hotel location. Could check with the hotel staffs. The garden is the last bus stop. It would take up at least half an hour from Futian to the garden.
In any case, check with the front desk of the hotel upon arrival. The above are based on memories.
Have a safe trip.
