豫园 Yuyuan Garden gives visitors a preview of what they will see if they visit the historic gardens of Suzhou. Finely cultivated with an eye for style and detail rarely seen in modern gardens, Yuyuan Garden is a peaceful retreat from the crowded city streets. It can get a bit crowded inside the garden lanes itself when tour groups go through, but there are lots of little areas where you can retreat to a corner if you want.
Outside the garden itself are hundreds of shops and stalls selling tourist souveniers. The area also hosts quite a few restaurants where you can find a decent lunch, and even a Starbucks and a HÃ¤agen-Dazs if you need some western comfort food or drinks.
