Firstly, you will visit Lion Grove Garden. Lion Grove Garden is famous for the large and labyrinthine grotto of Taihu (Lake Tai) rocks at its center. The name of the garden is derived from the shape of these rocks, which are said to resemble lions. It is one of the four most famous and representative classic gardens in Suzhou (the other three being the Surging Wave Pavilion, Lingering Garden and Humble Administrator's Garden). Lion Grove Garden covers an area of about 1.1 hec and it's an ideal site for sightseeing as it has richly ornamental pavilions and towers in different styles, each having its own history and story. The name of the garden "Lion Grove," came from a reference to lions in a Buddhist story which included descriptions of a rocky place in a bamboo forest (resembling the garden).

Then go to The Garden of Cultivation. The Garden of Cultivation is one of the best preserved examples of a Ming Dynasty classical garden in Suzhou.  The structure of the garden is formed along a north to south axis which ties the three main elements of rockery, pool, and hall together. This style of composition is also used in the Mountain Villa with Embraced Beauty. The garden of Cultivation is very typical of the Ming Dynasty design aesthetic because of its clear composition in plan and the elegance and simplicity of its elements.

Lunch will be arranged at a local Chinese restaurant, our Suzhou tour guide will give you good recommendations on spot.

The next stop is Grand Canal (Include Private Boat Ride). The Grand Canal Suzhou Section refers to the part from Wuqi Bridge (the border of Suzhou and Wuxi) to Yazi Ba (the border of Suzhou and Zhejiang Province),which covers around 82.35 km. Suzhou Section is the essential part undertaking freight transport on the canal. Most of the coal, constructional materials, rice, oil and various agricultural products to the city, towns, villages are transferred through the course of the river. The Canal flowing through the city has left many places of historical interest along the river. It is easy for visitors to travel to Hangzhou from Suzhou City by ship, and appreciate these sights along the canal.

Continue your trip to Shantang Street. This street is also called Seven-mile Shantang, is located in the northwest of Suzhou, and the total length of it is about seven li (3.5 kilometers). Shantang Street in Suzhou attracts many tourists from home and abroad. Most of them prefer traveling along the canal, enjoying beautiful scenery. Owing to its distinguished geographic location and convenient water and land transportation, Shantang Street was one of the streets which trade and culture were most highly developed in Ming and Qing dynasties, regarded as “the No.1 Ancient Street in China”.

The final stop is Suzhou No.1 Silk Factory. Suzhou has a long and rich history of silk culture, including mulberry tree and silk worm cultivation and turning raw silk into beautiful fabric. The Suzhou No.1 Silk Factory more like a museum which shows you how the silk is made from cocoons from the beginning and the whole silk process. Not to be missed.

Tour Highlights Suzhou with Guide Ruby

It was our 1st trip to Suzhou over the weekend. Hence time was of essence and thanks to Suzhou Private Tours and Ruby, our tour guide, we were able to appreciate the beauty of Suzhou during the day tour. This was despite the day being a wet one but Ruby was able to make our Suzhou day trip an extremely enjoyable! The service was perfect and Ruby went beyond to help us purchas a souvenir the next day (after our day tour) and delivered to our hotel when we overlooked to do so during the tour.
Thank you, Ruby, for making this trip of ours, so memorable!
