Walk through the Government Building, Residential area, relax along the Long Corridor, climb up to the Tower of Buddhist Incense and finally see the famous Marble Boat at the end of the Corridor. Take the Dragon Boat to go through the lake to get out of the Garden.(the boat is just available from April to Nov.) Drop you back to your hotel after the 9 hours tour.
