Tiger Hill, Suzhou
(4.2/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
A small hillock with a rich history going back 2,500 years, Tiger Hill offers a well-maintained scenic place overlooking Suzhou. Rock gardens with man-made cascades and ponds amidst greenery draw locals and tourists alike, while the imperial architecture on the hill was a favorite retreat to five dynasties. Check out the famous leaning pagoda on the 36 m (118 ft) high hilltop, and visit the many pavilions spread across some 1.4 hectares (3.5 acres). You can take a walk across a picturesque stone bridge or get out on the water in a rented paddleboat. Hire a guide to tell you all the details about the tomb of King He Lu buried here in 496 BCE, or the well of the 8th-century tea sage, Lu Yu. Use our Suzhou trip generator to arrange your visit to Tiger Hill and other attractions in Suzhou.

  • King Wu is located away from other tourist destinations is land. I think by bus in General. Affected by land subsidence, the leaning tower is famous, but reaching this tower is very considerably, including stair and don't. It is a good place to have views of the Canal area.
