Pretty garden

The Lingering Garden is very pretty, despite being crowded when we visited. Lots of little pathways, ponds with fish, etc. An enjoyable visit!

A good place for travellers to take photos. You can take fantastic scenery photos here but keep you belongings safe.

Visited more than 30 years ago with a very good impression. This July I visited this garden again, felt a bit disappointed. It's not well maintained for such a nice garden. Entrance fees are too high for the scale and condition.

Suzhou has so many gardens to visit and you need to make trade offs. Liu Lingering Garden is clearly a "must see". Located a bit outside of the old city center, it is worth to few kilometers. This place offers what you expect from a great Chinese garden - check it out!!!!!

This is another very nice Suzhou garden with many beautiful points of view. The flowers were very nice and the displays of older Chinese furniture are excellent.

I visited several of the gardens in Suzhou while I was visiting Shanghai. The Liu Lingering Garden was my favorite. I went on a Wednesday so I'm not sure if that's why it wasn't crowded but I practically had the place to myself! I found a great little nook in a rock structure and ended up reading for a few...

A spectacular walking garden, beautifully kept. It includes a magnificent bonsai tree garden. The inlaid pathways feature a variety of animals and designs. A gorgeous building has silk windows. Don't miss this. You will be more serene coming out than going in, guaranteed.

We came here on steamy summer's day. As we meandered through the different areas, you could feel a cool breeze. Very picturesque! Beautiful display of bonsai, and pay attention to the pathways. They feature some beautiful pictures laid in stone.
