“pouring rain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

the rain is my most lingering memory of the garden. It is a vast garden, with many little lakes and buildings throughout. It is quite beautiful(even in the rain) We were only there for 1 day and I would have liked longer in Suhzhou.

“Linger, if you can!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This delightful garden is an intimate refuge. You can find little spots of quiet even though there are lots of people around you! The furniture and scenes were fascinating to view. These gardens must be truly magnificent when they are in bloom! Go!

“Very traditional with an interesting history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I recommend reading about it or hire a tour guide to understand the design of the house and the gardens since there is a rationale and tradition. You can take very lovely photographs due to the design of the garden. It is too bad that a lot of the structures are vacant and are not preserved so that one can experience the garden in the context of the former owners.
