We visited Master of Net Gardens with tour director David Yang. David was a great and friendly tour guide, answering all of our questions and providing great insight into the Suzhou culture and history. Thanks David. What a wonderful tour we had.

Beautiful scenery in the center of Suzhou. A little crowded; visit the garden early in the morning. Nice to drink tea in the tea house. We even had some live music.
