This place is beautiful. But if you want to take a nice photo, do avoid visit during holiday season. We came here during New Year and it was really crowded and noisy and we couldn't enjoy the atmosphere to the max.

Gardens are aplenty in Suzhou. What stands out here is the numerous and interesting rock formations. Makes the trip more interesting. Worth a visit for some photo taking.
