Landscape Architecture, Suzhou

4.3
See masterpieces of classical Chinese gardening at Landscape Architecture, built between the 11th and 19th centuries. The lakes and ponds exude a serene ambiance, while the canals connected with small bridges add a special charm. Stroll around the murky green ponds, admiring distinct Chinese architecture featuring ornate woodwork and bold use of colors. The main elements of the gardens--walls, trees, and rocks--mimic the mountainous and rocky surroundings, with well-maintained pathways winding through the picturesque nature.

    Suzhou is one of the most beautiful Chinese cities and not visited quickly with an easy day trip from Shanghai as most tourists do. Has the most beautiful gardens in China and perhaps the world, Japanese ones remember who took inspiration from these. The old town is very quaint, typical of all cities near the Imperial Canal, partly restored and partly still rundown. In many places it seems a small, very small, Venice. It's still a fairly genuine and though much visited hasn't lost its character. Count on at least two full days to visit all, excluding these two days the other towns.

Where to stay in Suzhou

The range of accommodations available in Suzhou reflects the diversity of architectural styles and historical periods on display throughout the city. Crossed by countless canals, the city's most atmospheric accommodations lie close to the knotted waterways, with modest guesthouses and hotels on the lesser waterways, and more luxurious options located in the more scenic canal areas. A wealth of modern development has left the city dotted with high-rise hotels, with the tall tower blocks offering rooms with an abundance of extra facilities and views over the city.
