Trip Planner:   Asia  /  China  /  Jiangsu  /  Suzhou  /  Panmen Gate
Part of the 6th-century BCE city wall that once surrounded Suzhou, Panmen Gate now stands as the only well-preserved water-and-land city gate in the world. It leads to a place soaked in history with ancient landmarks, including a pagoda and bridge. Inside the gate tower itself, history beckons among the ancient weapons on display on the first floor, while an extensive view of the whole city awaits you at the top. Once you pass through the gate, absorb the beauty of the carefully designed scenic area as you cross the small bridges over streams full of koi, admire the elegant pavilions, or take a boat tour.

  • The scenic staff is too poor, the tickets bought the night before, due to the time of the second day, the guide said it's okay, can go in, the results do not let in, to communicate with their marketing department, tour guide communication is not good, played a lot of phone no one to answer, we in the gale medium for a long time, the result hit 110 to get into, I mean, what if there's an emergency? No answer to the phone.

  • Pan Men is part of the ancient city wall and was the river gate to the city. It has been tastefully restored can be visited free of charge (outside) you can walk along the old city wall, see the canal...  more »
  • Beautiful garden with a lot of restaurants trappings. The entry is full right with 40 RMB. Be sure only around 17:00 (is open until 20:00) going into the week, since it is pretty empty and you can enjoy the sunset. Then you can take still a nice walk outside the walls.
