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!

It was an ancient royal burial site (2500 years ago) with an leaning tower nearby. and over the years, many famous painters and poets have visited here and left many writings and stories. It is a mixture of natural beauty, Southern Chinese garden/landscaping arts and Chinese histories. English tour guide can be arranged at the park entrance for around 15-20... More

Many hidden treasures are in the back of the garden. The arch gates, stone mountains, artistically made plants, and flowers, blend nicely together. Such tranquility made you feel that you could still have some peacefulness and stillness in the corner.

One of my favourite garden in Suzhou, enjoy a nice point of view from the tower. Do not forget to go to the far back of the garden where you will discover a very nice and peacefull lake with a tea house and old chinese playing cards or dominos. Very nice and peacefull.

In the Tiger Hill, you can find trees, flowers, stones, and a leaning tower. Yes, a leaning tower. I was surprised to see a leaning tower aside from Pisa Tower in Italy. But apparently China has one too, but I guess lots of people don't know that since I only knew when I saw it. I went there during winter... More

Tiger Hill was a great part of my Suzhou experience. The Pagoda and the history of the site is very interesting. I thought that the story of 1000 workers being killed after constructing a hidden mausoleum on the site to keep the location secret was intriguing (though a bit morbid). Apparently the tomb has remained unopened to this day. The... More

it is one of the rare cases when the original old building is neither rebuilt nor even decorated to look better: it just stands firm (though with some visible slant) in its old-styled dignity. There is huge park around with quiet walkways, ponds and channels with local style "gondolas", tea-houses and whatever else you would imagine for an unforgettable meeting.... More

I was surprised to see another leaning tower besides Pisa! It is a historical site and you get to see nice surrounding with a perfectly well kept place.

Regarded as the "first scenic spot in the State of Wu", and comes with much history and many legends. See the Sword Pond, the famous leaning pagoda (supposedly it has been leaning since its completion in 959-961AD!!). There are some views of Suzhou from the top but it is the wealth of legends associated with Tiger Hill that make it... More
