About Suzhou

The beauty of Suzhou is found in all the gardens, mountains and rivers within the city, as well as in the rich variety of ancient cultural charm and artistic atmosphere. From the numerous ancient waterside villages on the periphery of Suzhou to the Humble Administrator’s Garden, a World Heritage Site, and the Suzhou Museum, the exquisite delights of Suzhou are endless. Suzhou is located on a network of waterways and the city streets are built to follow the rivers, producing the unique style of “little bridges, flowing water and households.” The Tang Dynasty poet Zhang Ji’s poem, "Night Mooring at Maple Bridge", has caused tourists from ancient and modern times to flock to Maple Bridge and hear the bells of Hanshan Temple. The mountains of Lingyan, Taiping, Tianchi and Dongting are scattered along the banks of Lake Tai outside of Gusu District and showcase the majesty of nature.

This ancient town has a history of more than 900 years old with many houses built in the Ming and Qing dynasties. Known as Yao City or Zhenfang lane in ancient times, the town was once a part of the Kingdom of Wu, playing an important role in the distribution of silk, ceramics, art pieces, and food. With lakes on the four sides, the beauty of Zhouzhuang has to be discovered through its water lanes and stone bridges. Taking a boat ride would be an interesting option to tour around the town.

Lion Forest Garden
4.7/5
8,670 Reviews
Garden
Lion Forest Garden, Humble Administrator's Garden, Lingering Garden, and Canglang Pavilion are collectively known as the “Four Famous Suzhou Gardens”. The Lion Forest was built in the Yuan Dynasty and was originally a back garden of Zen temples. It was later purchased as a private residence. This garden was treasured by Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty, who always stayed here during his visits to Southern China. Although the Lion Grove Garden is small, the artificial mountains in the park are very well-known. The strange rocks resemble dancing lions. The connection between the artificial mountains is not dissimilar to a maze. You can play hide-and-seek in the stone maze or count the number of observable stone lions.

If you only go to a garden in your life, it is enough to go to a Humble Administrator's Garden.
Humble Administrator's Garden is one of the four famous gardens in China. It is also the most representative attraction in Suzhou. It is a city card of Suzhou and a world cultural heritage. Among the many gardens in Suzhou, the Humble Administrator's Garden is the largest and most beautiful. If you don't have time to visit the gardens of Suzhou, then it is enough to go to the Humble Administrator's Garden. The Humble Administrator's Garden is close to the Suzhou Museum. Bus No. 2 and No. 309 can be reached. Tickets are 70 yuan in the off-season and 90 yuan in the peak season.
The small bridge in the Humble Administrator's Garden, the pavilion and the towers are beautiful, the doors and windows are exquisite, the corridors are twisted and twisted, and there are flowers and trees mixed together. It is a step by step, and there is a charm of Jiangnan Water Town everywhere.
Because the Humble Administrator's Garden is very popular all year round, there are many tourists. How to avoid the crowds is a problem. If you want to take a photo, I suggest you go to the park at 7:30 in the morning.
It is said that the photo of the Humble Administrator's Garden is the most beautiful. It is also a matter of benevolent seeing the wise and seeing wisdom. In fact, in the pavilion, on the stone bridge, the geometrical windows and doors can be photographed in the United States and the United States. "Lake Cui" is a circular arch under the undulating eaves. The arch is engraved with the "Guanyuan" on one side and the "Liang Cui" on the other. The distant view is like a landscape painting. It is very beautiful and there is a beautiful scenery. The octagonal door called "Aeronautical Field" is also very nice to take pictures.
