Winding roadway leads to a hidden garden,
Tall gate and wall protects a wealthy family.
The pond is as clear as the bronze mirror,
Beautiful flowers bring joy to every guests.
Water ripples, reflecting the sunshine of spring,
Corridors enshrine the charming sunset glows.
If you are lucky enough to hear the live music,
Even Garden of Gold Valley can not compare.
