Tiger Hill is certainly worth seeing. The ancient tower and surrounding area gives you a sense of Chinese history and culture. One of the better spots in Suzhou.

When I stood in front of pagoda on Tiger Hill and looked at it I had feeling it must be breaking the laws of physics. Pagoda's leaning angle was too high for my brain to digest it because brain said: such high, more than one thousand years old structure made of bricks with small base cannot survive such leaning and...

This is a bit of historical preservation in the middle of old Suzhou with a city wall that dates back over 2500 years and a leaning, seven-story, eight-sided tower that is around 1100 years old. There are small forests and pathways to meander about. You can easily forget that you are inside a bustling city of 10 million people as... More

It is a peaceful place, take your time while walking around the gardens. Not far out of Shanghai, worth the trip if you have time.

Tiger Hill located not far from Suzhou town, just grab a taxi to get there and spent me about 20CNY one way. The entrance fee is quite expensive, 80CNY per person, you can pay some extra money to hire a guide if you want to understand more about the history of this place. Make sure you buy the ticket at...

We really enjoyed this area. There was much to see -- bamboo groves, tea orchards (?), beautiful buidlings and of course the leaning pagota from the 900s. We spent a couple of hours enjoying the sights. This requires alot of walking! The area around Tiger Hill was a little seedy, but we didn't feel unsafe at all.

I loved visiting Tiger Hill. We missed out on a lot of the history due to our guide not speaking English, but it was wonderful to walk around and just enjoy the space. Make sure to visit the bonsai trees - it was my favorite part of the day. The garden was so peaceful and not at all crowded. It... More

This is a parkland area which is very popular, and so very busy. The hill has been a tourist attraction for hundreds, if not thousands of years, as is evident from the poetry and calligraphy carved into rocks. Well worth the visit if you're in Suzhou.

We were here by Sept 2014. We take a golf car to the top of the hill then walking down slowly. There is a temple with 500 years history on the top side. The air is so fresh and clean. A lot of Anion here. While walking down the hill, we listened lot of stories here from different tour guide... More
