Considered the number four most well-preserved garden in China. Very nice, but not much different from the others in Suzhou, but you might as well see all of them. Easy to get to. Tourist bus #1 stops right in front of it. Bus #1 does an easy to follow loop around the city and stops in front of all the... More

If you would like to see and experience a traditional chinese garden then Liu Garden is a good choice. Despite having lot of visitors, coming from a city i feel the pace slowing down immediately upon entering the garden. It was a serene experience with lots of plants, trees, floral and bonsai. Children may be bored here though. Generally a... More

Housing the rich and politically connected people to the emperor of China, the Lingering garden is one such example of social status during such times. The garden is very tranquil with stone gardens, a small pond, ancient Chinese architectures and a nice bonsai collection. You can take some amazing photos there to remember your trip to China. Its a must... More

Not too large, not too small, the lingering Garden incorporates all aspects of a traditional (and older) Chinese garden; water bodies, rock formations, bamboo grove, a bonsai collection, nice walking paths (both open and covered), secluded spots for a bit of contemplation and classical architecture, and much more. In addition, there are demonstrations of traditional Chinese music and instruments at... More

The Liu Lingering Garden has a typical romantic setting that leaves one believing you are in Venice. A smaller garden as compared to others in Suzhou but absolutely beautiful. More than ample great photo opportunities and you cannot forget that you are in China!

This seemingly small garden has a lot to see so allow plenty of time. Beautiful greenery, a pond, buildings, a stone garden, and Chinese bonsai! Don't miss it if visiting Suzhou.

Make sure you always plan when you doing anything in china. Avoid most sites on weekends and holidays. This being said we visited here the weekend after the Oct. National holiday, and were surprised to see how empty it was. Tickets are sold out front for 55rmb for an adult. Children under 120cm are free. There are many shows put... More
