Quite expensive for what it is . Sure it's pretty but there's really not much to it. Not for me but the artsy type people may enjoy it .

There are several beautiful gardens in Suzhou, but this one is really the best. It's beautiful to see it during spring when cherry trees are in blossom.

This is a huge, wonderful garden which could be really fairy ... if it were not so crowded. We were "only" 3,500 visitors on a maximum of 10,000 allowed but nevertheless I had the feeling the garden was filled to the brim. The garden is mainly composed of Chinese pavilions connected by adorable paths and lovely bridges over cute pounds.... More

A large garden/park off the market traders area. There are plenty of paths to walk round and garden to explore. Nice pagodas so take your camera, can get busy with school trips. Trees give shade from heat of mid day sun and there is drinking area and toilets in the gardens.

It's good but be sure to bring insect repellent. We got bitten quite badly here. Tried the ice-cream here but ended up with an upset stomach after that...

Historic gardens with pagodas and waterfall along with centuries old arcitecture take you back in time. Very relaxing. Take it in on a weekday to avoid the crowds.

I visited this garden on a Sunday afternoon, weather was good and garden was packed with local and foreign visitors. Garden is listed as a World Heritage location. Entry charge was 900 RMB - approx. US$15. Garden has some ancient architecture, I also found some of the old trees interesting, even saw three dead fossilized tree trunck

I have been to a number of classical Chinese gardens, this is absolutely my favorite. The size, the diversity of plants, vistas, architecture are all amazing. Add to this the fact that the Suzhou Garden Museum and the Suzhou Museum are on the same street makes this a place worth visiting.
