The gardens are undoubtfully beautiful and sirene but how can one really enjoy them and become one with nature if there are hundreds of people around shouting, playing and not respecting the others?

This is a beautiful garden set in an old part of Suzhou. Peaceful and tranquility personified. We spent approx 1.5 hours viewing the various areas of the garden. Also had Chinese tea and peanuts for morning tea. Interesting old area around the gardens to explore and also some shops. We bought an old carved stone stamp from one of them.... More

The location of this beautiful, classical and serene gardens, also should be explored (probably later) as one can see the old-era style houses besides the canal. Once you enter the garden, it is advisable to follow the 'recommended route' on the tourist sign post, as one can easily get lost in the sprawling gardens. Again highly recommended to go there...
