It takes 30 mins out of the city and our guide (QuinQuin booked through Trip advisor) brought us here, as my husband had a list of places that he believed we would be most interested and she confirmed that they were of merit. We visited the Humble Administrators Garden first about 10 minutes away in this ancient city. As you... More

We stopped in here on the way to Suzhou City (for business). Very relaxing and interesting location and worth the stop. We had the benefit of a local guide with us who was able to fill in the gaps for English speaking tourists, but I would suggest even without this, it would have been a picturesque (albeit slightly confusing) place...

It was the afternoon of our last day in Suzhou, and after an enjoyable morning at the Pan Men scenic area in the south of the city we had time left for one more "attraction" in the city so decided to visit Tiger Hill. Until the Pagoda of the Rock is reopened , unless you really love massed potted plants... More

We had a long climb to get up to the pagoda on top of the hill; but it was worth it. When we came to the pagoda, there was scaffolding on it. The entire structure is masonry and designed to imitate wood construction. The pagoda weighs 15,000,000 pounds. It did appear to need some renovation. But then again, it is... More

The Tiger Hill has a lot of significance to the Chinese crowds, but not so much to all of the foreign tourists. The best spot is of course the Leaning Pagoda, the oldest leaning tower in the world. I would give it a second go, only if I had no other things to do in Suzhou. It is wrth going... More

Tiger hill has not tiger but it's a nice place to go. Story has it that there are swords being hidden in the lake and there was even a sword that was crafted to cut through a stone and there is even a stone there as prove. Not sure if it's true but it does sound incredible. Got quite a... More

The complex looks deceptively small when you enter. We went over a weekend morning & it was not very crowded. Could be because the main pagoda is still under repair & surrounded by scaffolding mostly. You can climb the stairs up straight to the pagoda or take a slower meandering but more scenic walk along the foliage. Parts of the... More

It happened to be a nice sunny day on the day we went to Tiger Hill. Unfortunately, the pagoda tower on top of the hill is under maintenance and has scaffolding going half way up the tower. Nevertheless, the garden surrounding the hill was lovely and we enjoyed a walk around the grounds with many photo opportunities. It is worth... More

Beautiful gardens around Pagoda. Wear comfortable shoes as there are some steps. Construction around base of Pagoda but visit still worthwhile. Look out for the funny Chinglish translations in the garden.
