Beautiful gardens

Could have spent all day exploring the gardens and buildings. Displays were very interesting especially the silk embroideries. We took taxi too and from.

Visited a few years back... Not your typical garden as it combines classical layout but with very distinctive rock features. It was both mysterious and peaceful at the same time. A serene place to spend a few hours in admiring the classical Chinese architecture of different structures and the plentiful covered walkways. A not to be missed attraction in Suzhou!

Visted here on a day tour from Shanghai. Great place to see what China was like many years ago. Very peaceful. Can combine it with a tour to the silk factory

We visited the Humble Administrator's garden and the Garden of the Master of the nets. Both interesting, lots of water and fancy buildings as well as the trees and planting, just beautiful and very different from European gardens.

Lovely classic Chinese gardens with plenty of bonsai and water features. We visited on a rainy day and were glad to have lots of covered walkways.

This "attraction" should really be removed from the listing. It is misleading, as the individual gardens are also all listed. One may think (I did at first) that this is another actual garden, with address and everything. The gardens, sure, are great, but I am not sure this should be listed as an individual place to go.

The gardens are very well preserved and clean. Although there were a lot of tourists, it was quiet and pleasant to walk through it.

It is absolutely one of the most beautiful garden's that I have seen. Our Chinese Guide spoke perfect English and had a good sense of humor. I would take my camera with me again, walking shoes, and any garden lover to share the experience.

Suzhou is a very beautiful area with ancient art and constructions with beautiful gardens. In April you get beautiful flowers everywhere. Lingering garden is a real attraction. Don't forget to take a trip on the river. It is like Venice. going through the area in a small boat
