Great Wave Pavilion Garden

Recommended
Set away from the town's busy main streets, the oldest garden in Suzhou was built in the 11C by the poet Shu Shunqin. The main courtyard is entirely occupied by a hill, on top of which stands the Great Wave Pavilion, and surrounded by a gallery pierced by 108 sculpted windows. Water is only present here on the exterior, in the form of a canal visible from the Contemplation of the Fish pavilion. In a side courtyard, admire a pleasant pavilion surrounded by bamboo.
