The tower was very pretty and the gardens were really well kept. Wasn't the greatest thing I saw in China/Souzou but it was a great place to take a break. We stopped here (i was on a tour) and we had an hour to explore. It was more than enough time. We actually ended up taking a tour in a... More

This is a great location overlooking the old Suzhou city. It is worthwhile to take an open electric bus (30 kuai) around the perimeter of the grounds to get a sense of the grounds an things to see. There is also an open electric bus to the top. It was 93 F when we were there. The grounds are quiet... More

After the hectic Humble Administrator's Garden it was so good to visit somewhere which had a natural beauty and room to breath. There were a lot of visitors, but over a large area so it did not seem so crowded. also there are secluded pathways amongst the trees. A very nice day out indeed.

My friend and I went to Suzhou on the hottest days of summer. I thought my friend was insane when she said she wanted to climb all the way to the top but after reaching past the 3rd floor, we noticed a really nice breeze that passes through the center of the pagoda. It's a great way to escape the... More

Loved the grounds and the history of this site. Additionally, it was less crowded than the Humble Administrators Garden. Very peaceful and quiet. The story of the excavation difficulties is very interesting. I would enjoy going back once the Chinese figure out how to excavate the site without damaging the tower.

Forget the electric car that can take you up to the hill, just take a little hike, it's worth it (unless you have bad legs, of course). If you can get a local guide, get one, they have interesting stories about this place, and the scenery when you go down the hill is worth the sweat =)

A must-see in Suzhou. The pagoda/tower is amazing, as are all of the little gardens and landmarks dotted about the hill. Take your time to wander where you please, it's a very relaxing experience. I highly recommend going to the little old tea-house at the back of the hill for a cup of Tiger Hill tea.

I loved walking everywhere on Tiger Hill.the water that was flowing down from the high mountains was so clear and amazing to drink the tea that was made with it. Indeed worthwhile to order the dish from from the famous lotus powder and to have a cup of tea in the restaurant up on the hill. A trip worth going... More

My favourite attraction in Suzhou is this Tiger Hill with beautiful spring flowers, temple and the spectacular oriental leaning tower! Missing this place as if I had never been to Suzou!
