Why locals recommend it
There is an incredible giant garden with a lake, a temple, and quiet little pagodas that are perfect writing sanctuaries. You’ll find it to be meditative bliss, and a good meditation can be perfect for breaking through any writer’s block. There’s nobody trying to enforce any type of beliefs on you here—it’s just peace, clarity, and beauty. You can wander the grounds for free. Find a shaded spot or a Pagoda and write away. And when you get blocked, take time out to meditate—the energy is strong here.
