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 listener said that the city was an ancient grandchildren right, so we can see the old City, where there is a treasure tower, there are statues and an ancient bridge, the night from the bridge to see the scenery is very charming, the famous Fu Qishi rain Jiangnan!

  • It has a very beautiful, despite being restored garden, and the bread wall is the only one that has both the land gate and river gate preserved from the Kingdom of Wu

  • A place full of serenity and history. Little visited compared to other well-known gardens of Suzhou, but to visit if you have time. Example of fortification in China.
