Master of the Nets Garden

Highly recommended
Although it's the smallest garden in Suzhou, the Master of the Nets is without doubt the most appealing for visitors. Laid out in the 12C and then abandoned, it was restored in the 18C by a bureaucrat who it is said was tired of his administrative duties and dreamt of becoming a humble fisherman. Although this is undoubtedly a legend, this miniature garden is highly evocative, in which a pavilion was built whose only purpose was to provide a serene setting from which to admire the reflection of the moon on the lake.
