I always seem to miss the Gateway when I visit Chinatown in the various cities I have traveled to and Portland was no different. Located on NW Fourth and West Burnside Street. I finally saw the Gateway when I was on the bus heading to Sandy by the way of Burnside.

The Gateway has 78 dragons and 58 mythical characters. There are 2 lions on either side of the gate and are male and female (yin and yang elements).

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Between Lake and Mountain Lies True Meaning

Lan Su Chinese Garden – $9.50 – Open 10 to 5 – Located at NW 3rd Avenue in Portland

Had a cup of Hibsicus tea in the Tea House – one experience to not be missed!

You have to see the Chinese Garden in person because it is a BEAUTIFUL place. I enjoyed taking photos throughout the garden, since a majority of flowers, shrubs and trees were starting to bud and blosom out.
