When you visit Tiger Hill, the thing that stands out from the other is this leaning tower. Yes, it's a leaning tower aside from the Pisa Tower in Italy. Expect to encounter some stairs to reach the pagoda.

Worth a visit if you haven't done it many times before. Neatly kept grounds and garden. Worth a climb to the top on a clear day. A quiet little peace of haaaa to visit away from the crowds. People usually respect the calmness that these places command! So take a breather, sit and enjoy the Zen....!

A bit of a hike through the park, but worth it to see this pagoda. You cannot go inside it, but can get good photos from the back and sides if you don't want tourists posing in the front.

We couldn't get into the Pagoda but the gardens and Pagoda make for excellent photo ops. A lot of stairs to climb to get close to the base of the Pagoda making it difficult for some in our tour.

From the gardens to the Pagoda, this was an afternoon well spent. It is a relaxing and inspiring walk through the park. There was nothing I disliked about this park. Be sure to have your photo taken in front of the leaning pagoda.

Well worth it- the climb may be a little challenging for handicapped or elderly visitors. You can enjoy the canals and shopping nearby. I did not find it as well maintained as Hanshan temple but this leaning Pagoda is a must see for those who appreciate historical sites.

It's just great, and part of the Tiger Hill experience. Very beautiful and amazing building and absolutely something you don't want to miss out on in Suzhou.

Tiger Hill is great and this pagoda is very interesting. It is the leaning tower of China! Once you climb Tiger Hill, this is what greets you at the top. It is great to look at, but that is all you can do as it is closed (sensibly) to the public. It is worth seeing along with everything else on... More

Set in the lovely tranquil atmosphere of Tiger Hill, it has a wonderful history and architecture. Interesting as it leans like Pisa. Don't miss taking a picture with Cloud Rock Leaning Pagoda.

If you like history... if you like mystery... and you heard of stories about hidden treasure under this pagoda - there is your chance to see it, at least from outside. Nice nature surroundings and lots of things to see and enjoy. A must for any visitor of Suzhou!
