This is a list of Chinese-style gardens both within China and elsewhere in the world.

Greater China[edit]

This list is organized by region within the Greater China region, roughly following the structure laid out by Maggie Keswick in The Chinese Garden. The names of Chinese gardens are very problematic in English; this list aims to capture all the major variants, both in Chinese and in English.
