Besides the gardens this is a must visit. The very old pagoda is impressive, but the quiet park with old pavilions and courtyards around it make it for a very serene place. You'll have to deal with the tourists but the place is big enough to soak in some quiet areas and plenty of greenery in a very Suzhou setting.

Although this is outside the old city, it is definitely worth the detour. The leaning pagoda is impressive! It can be crowded at the top but we found the park on the hill a very pleasant experience.

Met my expectations. Nice gardens and if you go on a quiet day then plan extra time to soak in serenity and all the little gardens and paths to explore. One trip here is enough but if you tie this in with a water town then you get a full flavor of Suzhou.

It is very large garden. It is easy to get there. I take bus no. 146 to the final stop. the ticket fee is RMB 80 at this moment. It took 2-3 hours to walk in this garden.

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 =)
