What people are saying:

Although it was not too golden to go to the garden, many small trees were bare, but still go, because other red cranes can still see a tail, can't they? Anyway, the ticket is only 45 oceans. It is very good to go in and see the Su style garden. We belong to ourselves to blind see. It would be better if there is a tour guide with a can also explain.

    More people than trees.

    The situation here is even worse than at the Humble Administrator's Garden. There seems to be no limit for the daily number of tickets, and although there is no line ups to get in there is a steady fl...

    Overbearing "security"

    Just like half of Suzhou, no matter if resident or tourist that has just arrived, no foreigners can enter, only Chinese nationals. No explanation offered other than you need an appointment. When you t...

Additional Information


The Lingering Garden, along with the Humble Administrator’s Garden in Suzhou, the Summer Palace in Beijing, and the Chengde Imperial Summer Resort in Hebei, are collectively known as China's Four Great Gardens. The Lingering Garden is known for the graceful beauty of its Chinese pavilions, rock collections, winding paths, the greenery which fills the park, and its jade-colored pond. Here, one can experience the calm of visiting an area in between that of a landscape garden and a natural landscape. The Lingering Garden was built in the Ming dynasty, in the 21st year of Emperor Wanli's reign (1593 CE) by Xu Taishi, a bureaucrat of the Ming court, as the landscape garden of his private residence. The garden was called the "East Garden" at the time. In the Qing dynasty, in the early years of Emperor Guangxu's reign, the garden was purchased by a bureaucrat by the name of Sheng Kang, who renamed it the "Lingering Garden". The garden is divided into four themed sections. Within a single garden, one can have a taste of four distinct scenes, namely natural landscapes, countrysides, mountain forests, and flower gardens.
