The Agricultural Scientific Academy is a farm aiming to integrate the best of both traditional and modern farming methods. Split into several areas, this 330 acre Academy sits at the bottom of Shuanglong Mountain.

A half-acre glass house called the Desert Arboretum Garden, houses over 150 kinds of cactus and 100 varieties of tropical desert plants. Sculptures of camels and other desert animals sit amongst the well-planted beds.

The Modern Agricultural Museum (also called Vegetable and Fruit Garden) uses hydroponic cultivation to grow produce which visitors are invited to try while they walk around the pretty bridges. A constant temperature of 25C gives this area a spring-like air all year round. Asparagus, cucumber, watermelon and cantaloupe are grown in the Soil-less Cultivation Garden. Two huge aviaries in the Birdie Fairyland houses nearly 2000 species of bird. The noise in this area which covers nearly three-quarters of an acre can be deafening. Visitors can feed ostriches and view the beautiful peacocks.
