Day 2

Suzhou

Today you will explore the Humble Administrator’s Garden followed by a traditional sampan ride on the Grand Canal. The largest of Suzhou's gardens, the Humble Administrator’s Garden dates back to 1513, and the use of water here is quite complex. The creation of multiple vistas and the dividing of spaces into distinct segments are the garden artist's means of expanding the compressed spaces of the estate.

Then, proceed to the Suzhou Museum, which has been a highly-regarded regional museum with a number of significant Chinese cultural relics, designed by world famous architect I.M.Pei.

Thereafter, continue to Tiger Hill (Hu Qiu) which enjoys a reputation as 'the first scenic spot in the State of Wu'. Suzhou was once the capital of the State of Wu during the Spring and Autumn Period. It is where the King of Wu, He Lu, was buried after his death. The area was named Tiger Hill after a tiger was seen lying on the tomb of He Lu.

After stroll along the Santang Cultural Street, transfer back to hotel and evening is at your leisure.
