Look out for the main hall details where how the male and female are differentiated in every aspect of the construction. (Listen to the audio guide if you don't engage a tour guide, otherwise you could have missed this out). From the beam to the columns, design of the tables and chairs, the front and back portion etc. Very interesting.... More

Definitely a unique traditional Chinese Garden. It is totally worth spend 2-3 hours explore the details of this garden. The combination and layout of Lion Forest Garden are amazing. One of the great places in Suzhou.

Guess we got lucky, as the Garden was not at all crowded. Beautiful day, beautiful garden. Even got "lost" in the rock garden...could see our way out but could not get there from here. Kids would LOVE IT!

This classical Chinese Garden is exceptional for its rockeries: a labyrinth of spectacular grottoes, tunnels and mounds, which is very popular with your visitors. The garden is not as large as the Humble Administrator Garden, and as a result it gets easily very crowded. Try to visit early in the morning before the crowds. Look for the water turtles in... More

We visited in the heat and humidity of July. This "garden" offered some relief from the elements, as you are climbing in and out of the rocky outcrops and tunnels. The maze of rocks is truly spectacular--my sons (ages 10,16, 19) LOVED playing and hiding from each other. Highly recommended for this age group, especially after touring the more traditional...

This garden is very interesting, but it was too crowded when we visited. Go early and try to avoid the crowds.

Be warned, I'm personally obsessed with rocks, rock climbing, caves, etc. so it is no wonder why I absolutely loved the Lion Forest Garden. The main feature is the winding maze-like paths going up and down, in and out, over and through neat little rock formations. There is a nice pond with koi fish, lily pads, a mid-pond pagoda, and...

This garden is my favourite, I went with some friend we had a lot of fun in the labyrinthe or the stone boat. I will definitely go back with friends.

It's a rock garden. So don't be expecting a flower garden when you go here. Neat rock maze. RMB 30 pp and 1/2 price for kids. We felt the entrance fee was reasonable. It was a fun challenge for our 4 yr old (free entrance) and even our 13 yr old to try to go through the maze (which requires... More

I'm not sure if you can call it a garden, there are more rocks than plants! However I went there by myself and had the time of my life! Stairs up, down, crawl and be very carefull of your head and neck as the caves are narrow, not europian sized! Had a lot of fun but can imagen if there... More
