Liu Yuan Garden, located in Suzhou, China, has been listed as a 4-AAAA national tourist attraction and a World Cultural Heritage site.
The name, Liu Yuan, means "lingering in the world." It certainly is a place you'd want to linger in! The garden was constructed in the Jiajing period of the Ming Dynasty in the mid 1500s. It covers about 6 acres. There are basically four parts to the garden: A picturesque central part, known for its streams and rockeries, an eastern part known for its courtyards and buildings, a northern pastoral section, and a western part that features woods and large trees.
The garden is open year-round from 7:30 AM to 7:30 PM. Admission varies depending on what season you visit. High season, March 1 - May 31 and September 1 - November 30, is 20 yuan. The rest of the time is considered low season. Cost for admission then is 15 yuan.
