One of the most popular gardens in Suzhou, even in Winter there come a lot of people. I recommend not going there on weekend as there will be really lots of people. Visit itself recommended, especially in spring.

A nice place to stroll around. Paths are tight so wear good walking shoes. Bring a good camera views are picture worthy.

Great place to visit if you find a free guide on Saturdays. Without one the magnificent place can grow dull fast. Visited twice already. Would go again! Nestled next to Pingjiang old town so couple your visit to both.

If you only visit one classical garden in Suzhou, it has to be this! It is the most popular and best garden for a reason. There are free guided tours in Chinese. I am not sure if they have them in English. Do yourself a...More
