Suzhou is the silk capital of China. We will visit Suzhou Silk Museum and learn about the history and culture of Chinese silk.
The entire museum design is dignified and elegant - yet unconventional - combining a sense of ancient civilization with modern style. It is divided into eight parts: the Introductory Hall, the Ancient Exhibit Hall, the Silkworm-Rearing Room, the Silk Weaving Workshop, the Vegetable Garden, the Central Hall, the Neoteric Exhibit Hall and the Modern Exhibit Hall.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Tiger Hill, No.8 Huqiushan, Suzhou 215008 China

After visiting Suzhou Silk Museum, you will head over to Tiger Hill. Known also as Surging Sea Hill, covers over 14,100 square meters (over three acres) and is 36 meters (118 feet) in height. Climbing it, you will find a number of historical sites, some of which can be traced back over 2500 years ago, the founding year of Suzhou. Although the hill is relatively small, it has rich history.
There are thousands of magnificent bonsai trees on display in the Tiger Hill. Many of the specimens you can see have been recognized in prestigious bonsai competitions. The miniature replicas of full sized gardens will surely amaze you and will give an insight into the skill and the artistry of Chinese master gardeners that has been handed down long ago.

Stop At: The Lingering Garden, NO. 338 Liuyuan Road, Jinchang Dist, Suzhou 215008 China

After exploring Tiger Hill, the next stop of your trip is The Lingering Garden.
With a history of more than 400 years, the Lingering Garden has changed several times. Each owner did his best to perfect it. The garden was first built in 1593 during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) by a retired official named Xu Tai. During the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911), it was bought by Liu Shu. As a calligraphy lover, he carved masterpieces on both sides of the corridors of the buildings. Almost demolished in the 1930s, the garden was repaired by the government and then opened to the public.

Duration: 1 hour
