We took a boat ride from Shan Tang jie to Tiger Hill. It was a 20mins boat ride. Do note that it's a one-way boat ride. You need to take a taxi or local bus back to original place. The pagoda is slightly slanted due to gravity. There are many interesting rocks along our way up to pagoda. It's a... More

The Tiger Hill Pagoda is the "leaning tower" of China, and at over 1,000 years of age, they are in the process of trying to save it from falling, so there are contractors on site and a bit of work going on. The pagoda's name is Yunyan, but is more commonly known as Tiger Hill pagoda. The gardens surrounding the... More

There are tons of interesting stories about Tiger Hill that you will miss out on if you do not speak Chinese. Thankfully I was with a Chinese friend who was able to translate for me, which made it a much more memorable visit and worth the effort to get there.

We went to Tiger Hill during the "Chinese New Year" holiday in 2014 and again in 2015. Each visit we discovered something new and we saw some amazing vendors that create various pieces of artwork or sketches. Any time I find my way back to Suzhou I plan to have Tiger Hill in my agenda for a stroll on a... More

Tiger Hill is a wonderful garden with lots of walking trails. Easy to navigate, but many steps if you go to the top where the tower is located. This tower, like Pisa in Italy is leaning due to erosion of the soil. Still beautiful. Lots of lovely architecturally pretty buildings throughout the walk. Lots of places to rest. Very peaceful.

Everyone says this is the best attraction in Suzhou, but it's really far away (long public transit ride) and costs 80 rmb for a garden which isn't that much better than gardens closer to downtown. The grounds are pretty and the pagoda is pretty, but it's not worth the time and the money. Close-by is the wedding dress street so... More

This is a great day out if you are visiting Suzhou, it can get busy at weekends so try and go midweek if you can. There are some lovely areas to walk around and if you can't make the climb up to the pagoda there is either a horse and carriage or shuttle bus. You can take a boat ride... More

Another historical place of china, Suzhou. Garden was okay. We were there in October ....nothing much in the garden as we did explored the bonsai and really old trees. The only interesting part is the pagoda. The leaning tower as it looks like the Pisa in Italy.

The entrance fee is CNY80 during the October period. Although a little pricey but still worth the visit for tourists with many photos taking location. The main attraction is the seven floors Yunyansi Pagoda which lean to the north to the east & has over 1000 years of history. The Bonsai gardens is also another beautiful sight. Good panoramic view... More

This is the most expensive attraction in Suzhou but is worth the visit and another must see attraction, with many picture locations, great history and a leaning Tower though there is no access to the Tower due to the condition. The Bonsai garden and Canals are interesting to walk around or take a boat on. Allow 4-6 hrs to see... More
