“Amazing rocks and tranquil pavillions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Rocks were the highlight here for me. So many interesting shapes. I liked being able to climb through and up onto some of them to gain different perspectives. Plenty of beautiful flowers and shrubs as well.

It would be easy to spend a long time here, pausing to soak in the natural beauty and appreciate the balance between the elements.

I was here in mid-April, when the flowers were in full bloom.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is a smaller garden than the Humble Administrator's, but full of rockeries and passages through the rocks, piles of rocks to climb for a good view, and pretty pavilions. Flowers were just starting to bloom in March, so April or May would be better. Still beautiful, though, in March.

“The best of these gardens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Definitely the best of all of the gardens in town. Worth an average mark, I don't think it's really worth going to suzhou if you're just looking for these gardens. Might as well go to Yu garden while you're in Shanghai... But this one was pretty cool, some of the stones actually looked like lions...

“Fun and unusual.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

i did not like this garden very much as a garden. But the huge rocks and clever maze made this an entertaining place to visit. If it's wet be very very careful as the stones are slippery. I nearly fell a couple of times.

“Good for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

But I don't have any so I found it a bit repetitive and over-priced for what it is. Most of these tourist sites are not so well kept and they charge too much. The area outside is full of touts just ignore them
