Lan Su Chinese Garden, Portland (must see)
Why You Should Visit:
To relax by the various secluded areas of meditation and reduce the pressures of the day or week. A slow pace will open the mind and heart to peace and clarity, while at the same time teaching you a little about traditional Chinese culture.
Don't miss the wonderful range of teas on offer, when you need some refreshment. A two-story, 50-seat teahouse in the lakeside Tower of Cosmic Reflections offers a nice contemplative spot to watch the light change over the plantings, Lake Zither, and the array of classical Chinese pavilions and walkways. Live traditional music is frequently played inside for visitors to resonate with slowly plucked-string sounds while enjoying their tea, sweets, and light snacks.
