This is a must see when visiting Suzhou. It is one of the most treasured and revered gardens in China!

Came here with my wife and it was so crowded so I would suggest avoiding coming at the weekend! It is a beautiful garden with some great architecture, trees and raised rock areas but with a big crowd it is spoilt!

This is probably the best garden in all of Suzhou. Takes about 2 hours if you have a slow walk through the gardens. Engage a guide to share more about the place to you

Came here because of its UNESCO status. It’s obviously a popular place because of the crowds & the shops. Entrance fee is more expensive (90 RMB). I love the landscape with very pretty peonies, peach blossom trees, bonsai, wisteria, & shrubbery. It’s like a maze...More

These gardens are nothing like I expected. Rocks, bridges and water play a very big part as do viewing places. I was surprised that all the cities I visited had amazing three dimensional public gardens with all the blossoms coming out late March and brilliant...More

Very nice watergarden, much bigger than expected and enormous amounts of tourists on a Sunday with nice weather. Try to avoid the weekends and enjoy the scenery.

Get here early. I arrived just before 7.30am on a Saturday morning and got a ticket and was one of the first through the doors. This meant that you can see the garden in relative peace and quiet and get photos without a million other...More

If you have the spare time, you can drop over, buy a ticket (not from the various touts outside but from the official ticket booth) and spend the time walking through the gardens, pavilions, some display of old furniture used in the residence etc. And...More
