This is a beautiful historical garden with classic Chinese architecture and plantings. Many of the rooms look just like Chinese paintings. The bonsai section is amazing.

This is one of the most famous gardens in China. The others being the Yu Gardens in Shanghai and the Humble Administrator's Gardens, also in Suzhou. Be prepared for a lot of walking but it is worth the effort.

This garden and the house are impressive. It must have been very carefully designed, and an-hour visit wasn't enough for me. This can be a good spot for taking pre-wedding pictures, if it's allowed =)
