This is a must visit for Suzhou. Superb classical garden that is World Heritage listed. Follow the suggested route or in reverse or just walk around taking it all in. Love the use of weather-beaten (maybe formerly submerged) rocks. It all combines with grand pavilions...More

Don't visit during national holidays as it gets very crowded! It is beautifully designed and taken care of. With a large variety of plants and ponds, it is a perfect way to escape the city and relax surrounded by nature.
