While I appreciate the history China has, this was just one building and garden too many for me. The next time I go I will tell my tour organiser that I do not want to see any gardens or lakes.

I suggest you visit Suzhou, which has many lovely small canals lined with older restored buildings, stone bridges, etc And much else to offer. We will spend four nights in Suzhou and wish we had planned to spend more.
