the ticket isn't expensive (30 yuan off peak season or 40 yuan peak season) a nice place to take photos, I would give this place around 60-90 mins to visit. Be mindful there are a lot of steps around the garden.

A place of tranquility. If you are lucky, you can go here when it's not too crowded. There is nothing humble about this humble Administrator's Garden

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. :-)
