Landscape Architecture, Suzhou

(4.3/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
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.
