Mangrove eco park is located in Balaring. The park consists of a long bamboo walkways that winds through a forest of Mangrove trees which the local government and residents have constructed for easier access. This is one of Silay tourist attractions.

The Chinese Garden was built in 1975 and designed by a famous architect from Taiwan. Prof. Yuen-chen Yu. True to their word the garden is a slice of ancient China complete with a series of bridges, pagodas and a tea house surrounded by ponds, lakes, and trees. Many of the trees are quaint models for bonsai trees.

The Japanese Garden is on the adjacent side of the bridge. The Japanese Garden is more modest and natural. The main focus of the garden is given to simplicity, peace and tranquility.

Here are some of the photos I took of what it’s like there:

The Gardens open daily, 6am – 11pm and the entrance fee is FREE. The Bonsai Garden and the Garden of Abundance (where you can see sculptures of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals) are open daily from 9am-6pm.

One of the major attraction of the Chinese Garden is the small Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum. I wasn’t able to visit the said museum as it was raining heavy and we needed to go back our condo.  (You may visit their website http://www.turtle-tortoise.com)

This garden is really worth a visit if you need a couple of hours of peaceful reflection.
