Our tour brought us here around 9 am on a Monday in April, and it was already crowded. The spring season must be a popular time to visit. Lingering Garden was owned by the Liu Family, and the character Liu translates to linger or stay on. Liu's Garden would've been a more appropriate name, but that's just my opinion.
The garden is a renowned classical Chinese garden and was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997. One step inside the garden and you're transported to a tranquil (even with the crowd) place surrounded with beautiful landscape and architecture. We saw a couple of performances - a guy on a boat playing a flute, and a small group of men and women playing some music using traditional Chinese instruments like the Chinese lute Pipa (琵琶), and the Chinese two-stringed fiddle Erhu (二胡) .
