Tiger Hill, Suzhou

#2 of 182 in Parks in Jiangsu
Park · Nature / Park
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 online sightseeing planner to visit Tiger Hill on your trip to Suzhou, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • One of the best place to visit if you are in Suzhou. I think morning hours are the best time to visit this place.
  • It’s a nice garden, you can tell they take care of it. The monument is much smaller than I expected but still worth to visit. I was there on November and the place was almost empty which made it easy to enjoy
