Together with the Administrator's house, the beautifully laid out gardens with winding pathways, pagodas, ponds and a different view every few yards. Even despite the rain and the crowds this was attractive. A guide will supply history, context and detail, as well as the "stories...More

Even in the pouring rain, this is still a highlight of Suzhou, but it's also the most expensive ticket in town at a whopping RMB90. Nothing humble about that fee. My advice is to see the Art Museum, the Silk Museum, the North Pagoda and...More

Gorgeous carved wooden pavilions, meandering paths and beautiful water features, bonsai and small gardens. Well worth a visit, but VERY busy on Saturdays!

Overcrowded, nothing special. Its not worth the ticket price. If you have nothing else to do I guesd you can go. There are few ponds, some architecture, lotus.

I had been to Suzhou many times, and visited all the gardens there. I say this is the best, not only because the space is big enough, but also because of the cleaniss and service. The garden is under good control, service of staffs is...More

This question is posted in the wrong place. This is a traditional Chinese garden and a UNESCO site. There is no "unit" and certainly no washing machine. :-)
