Wangshi Yuan (Garden of the Master of Nets): This garden is located in Suzhou's residential area.

The building of the canal began in 486 B.C. during the Wu Dynasty. It was extended during the Qi Dynasty, and later by Emperor Yangdi of Sui Dynasty during six years of furious construction The canal is 1,795 Km (1,114 miles) long with 24 locks and some 60 bridges.

Suzhou Silk Museum: Suzhou was once the capital of silk of China. Thread lanes, brocade mills, embroidery flower streets, etc., in the city. That proved the prosperity of suzhou embroidery. Some lived by embroidering. Daughters in rich families were engaged in it as a way of killing time and molding their experiment. That's how "popular embroidery", "boudoir embroidery" and "palace embroidery" came into being. The Suzhou Silk Museum reflects the history of embroidery and modern innovation.

Tiger Hill: Known for its natural beauty as well as historical sites. The hill is so named because it is said to look like a crouching tiger.
