  • 下午四点多进的园,风景不错,性价比不高,票价太贵,还有节假日人太多,都是游客,正好遇到花开的季节。有许多不同品种的鲜花,也有园林的元素在里头。  more »
  • 瘦西湖的樹,在這個時節真的是百花齊放,再加上湖水相映,煞是好看.湖上的五亭橋,涼風襲來,風光更是迷人!其實瘦西湖兩邊還有一些建築也值得細細品嘗,畢竟千年以上的景點,多少文人雅士光臨此地,必有各種文化遺留下來足供我們去品味!  more »
  • 南门进,游船50/人,到二十四桥。继续游船50/人到北门。人多,在南门比较集中,往北就好了。推荐体力好的步行,有老人坐船或电瓶车。建议在苏州不止去一个景点的买套票,因为个园大明寺单买都是45/人。瘦西湖150,70岁以上免票,船票半价。  more »
