I have been to Suzhou many times, and when it comes to its scenic spots, many of them are household names, after all, "there is a paradise above and a place below". I would like to take this opportunity to review my travels in Suzhou.
1. The most famous gardens in Suzhou are the Humble Administrator's Garden, Liuyuan Garden, Lion Grove, Lotus Garden, West Garden, Canglang Pavilion and Jingsi Garden. Among them, the Humble Administrator's Garden and the Liuyuan Garden are the top of the gardens, which must be visited, and these gardens alone, I was divided into 5 or 6 visits, so that each time there is a new feeling, so as not to "aesthetic fatigue".
2, other famous scenic spots: Fengqiao - Hanshan Temple, Huqiu, Suzhou Paradise, Guanqian Street.
3, the famous ancient town (including suburban counties): this should be the birthplace of water town tour, have been to Mudu, Zhouzhuang, Tongli, Qiandeng, Luzhi, Shajiabang, Zhenze, Shengze. Of which the six ancient towns of Jiangnan here occupy three seats.
4, famous lakes: Taihu Lake, Yangcheng Lake (taste the hairy crab).
As for the Panmen mentioned in this article, I have passed by it a few times before, but for time reasons I did not go in and walk around.
The scenic environment
The location of the scenic spot is located in the southwest of the old Gusu city, relatively closer to Suzhou South Bus Station, and the ancient Wu Palace Hotel next to the scenic spot is a sight in itself. The scenic area is also not far from Suzhou's newly developed canal excursion pier, so you can visit the Seven Mile Hill Pond by water.
Scenic Area Transportation.
A taxi from Suzhou South Bus Station to Panmen Scenic Area is the starting price without traffic. The driver told me that the road in front of the scenic spot was not accessible, so I got off and walked in, but somehow I saw numerous private cars parked. There should be buses arriving from the train station, but I didn't care too much.
Entrance fees for attractions.
Suzhou Panmen is a 4A level scenic area, with adult tickets at 40 RMB, with a discounted price of 32 RMB from Tongcheng; there are also some parent-child or scenic+meal packages for sale online to choose from, which seems to be a newly developed program by Tongcheng, so I thought I would try the scenic+meal package sometime.
Dining and shopping in the park.
There is not much dining in the park, shopping is up to you, but there are many different kinds of food and snacks outside the scenic area, and it was a very hot day, so having a bowl of cold noodles at this noodle shop was still a relatively pleasant thing to do.
Panmen scenic area, mainly to see the Panmen three scenes. This is the only surviving "Panmen" land and water gate in Suzhou, the "Wu Men Bridge" across the canal, and the famous "Ruiguang Temple Pagoda", which is linked by the Grand Canal to form a complete The three scenic spots are linked by the Grand Canal to form the complete Panmun Scenic Area.
