Panmen Gate, Suzhou

(4.2/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Panmen Gate to your Suzhou travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Suzhou vacation builder.

  • Probably the greatest object in Suzhou, allowing almost no people inside. In addition to magnificent gardens and colorful Karpov (whom you can feed, buying a bag of meal for two Yuan), the main attraction is of course the Panmen gate-water and land. The ticket price includes a short boat trip, during which "would" sings folk song in dialect "u"

  • It is located at the southwest corner of Suzhou old city wall scenic area. The stone bridge over the remaining portion of gates and sluice gates and Canal walls, like landmark tower, Suzhou Jiangnan style garden and noteworthy attractions. In particular, gates and sluice structure is interesting.
