Marco Polo Regarded the city as The Oriental Venice


Suzhou is my hometown, and over 200 gardens dot the city. Today I will take you to visit several gardens to find out why Suzhou has been regarded as the birth place of Chinese gardens.

The first stop is the Humble Administrator's Garden, one of the four famous classical gardens in China. Then we will take a boat ride in the small canals. Afterwards, we'll pay a visit to Lion Grove's Garden where I. M. PEI spent his childhood. After lunch , visit the Shantang Street together with the famous Tiger Hill scenic spot. You may find the oldest leaning tower actually is not in Rome. . . . . BUT in Suzhou!
