    Don't write this place off as too touristy. It's really relaxing and they often have tea tastings where they explain the history of the tea.

    Such a peaceful place in Old Town. Come inside to relax, walk around, gaze out at the lily pond or even take tea with a friend inside the teahouse by the artificial rock waterfall. Authenticity is key here, with artisans and gardeners who came over from China specifically to design and execute this traditional garden. Even kids won't be too bored here, with interactive DIY activities like calligraphy and tossing fortune sticks.

    The Lan Su Chinese Garden is a walled garden in Portland that takes up an entire city block. The garden may be popular, but there are plenty of nooks to enjoy quiet, peaceful moments. Don't miss the Tao of Tea for a cup of tea and small bites.

    A fascinating urban gardens right in Old Town. Interesting to compare this with the Japanese Gardens as well. The recorded tour that comes with your admission is well worth using when you explore the gardens. There's also a lovely tea house in the gardens.

    A wonderful example of an authentic Chinese garden. Beautiful and peaceful grounds with a lovely history. Just across the river by tram or bus in Old Town. Don't miss it.

    This is a beautiful chinese garden right in the heart of town. Once you set foot inside you forget you are right in downtown Portland. They have a nice tea house to have a bite before heading out to explore more of the city.

    If you need brownie points with your girlfriend, bring her here. The tranquility of the garden will help her forget that time you cancelled dinner on her to bro out with your buddies at a Trailblazers game. And it will help her forgive you for forgetting her birthday...twice.

    Seriously, though. It may sound cheesy but this place is a great way to spend a few hours of your afternoon with someone you care about. It's quiet, calm, and sophisticated. Try the tea room, too! Great way to converse and calm your nerves with a great cup of tea.
