What a beautiful garden. We arrived on an overcast misty day but the gardens can be viewed in any weather. Parts are indoors and with everything close up makes for great photo ops. We spent a couple hours and did not see everything. It does tend to get crowded so try to arrive early for pictures with less people in... More

Unfortunately, we visited on a cloudy day. As we walked around the pond, the different angles provided for numerous photo opps. I can’t imagine how beautiful it would be in a few weeks when everything was blooming and on a sunny day. However, these gardens are less about flowers and more about creating a stunning natural landscape in harmony with... More

I loved this garden and 'lingered' here for a couple of hours. They really made an effort to make it special and stand out. There were performers in traditional dress going around playing various Chinese instruments and singing. The garden is split into several distinct areas and is linked by walkways and water courses. They also have a lovely collection... More

This garden is very popular with Chinese groups, so it's usually very crowded. I try to get there as early as possible, just after it opens to avoid the crowds. But in my opinion, this one shows quite distinctly the architectural elements of Chinese traditional gardens, so it is worth a peek.

I just don't understand the hype about this garden. It was a fairly standard Chinese Garden - I am really not sure why some sources say it is one of the top 3 in China. I'm not even sure it is one of the top three in Suzhou. First of all, it really is not that big. You can see... More

Wow! What a pretty place to spend the morning. The gardens, rock sculptures, bonzai garden and art is amazing. While it was crowded due to a holiday, this is a place worth visiting in Suzhou. My only wish is that I could have stayed longer and it had been less croweded.

A bit far from Shanghai almost 2 hours drive. One of 3 best gardens in China. Beautiful architecture with great demonstration from our group tour guide Wang Tee Yu. Nice and old trees. Amazing lake with a couple playing music in their traditional dress. Many fruit vendors out of the garden with a human face fruit. A must visit.

The story behind the creation of this garden with 4 seasons is interesting but the garden in March held no appeal. Waters are murky and garden lacked soul. The Gardens at Tiger Hill (leaning Pagoda) was much more beautiful.

In the summer, walking through this garden makes you feel really happy. Just enjoying the sun and the beautifull architecture will make your day!
