Went here expecting to see more ornamental effects, but essentially a lotus pool surrounded by four different types of rocks, brought to the site from other parts of china. Not much information in English or a guidebook available. Notwithstanding, well laid out and lots of...More

I visited Suzhou in June 2017. The Lion Forest Garden or Lion Grove Garden has very interesting rock formations. But if you are not careful you can hit your head as I did. The Lion Forest Garden and the Humble Administrator's Garden are located near...More

We enjoyed our trip here. It's a beautiful place with interesting sculptures and lovely garden areas. It's easy to get to and inexpensive. Tip.... go early before it gets busy.

This garden has lovely paths, corridors, pavilions and water features. It is more reasonably priced than others in the area, and the mass of rock forms give it a unique feel. I loved the way it was laid out, with every few steps leading to...More

Visited this after visiting the Humble Administrator's Garden. Only a short walk between them. This garden is much smaller and had a crowded feel, as even on a Monday morning it soon filled up. The rock formations are fascinating.
