The second garden I visited is the Humble Administrator's Garden, which is 5.2 hectares or gorgeousness. Everywhere you look in this garden is beautiful. There are gazebos, bonsai trees, bridges, ponds, koi, ducks, tea houses, pavilions, and zillions of plants.See the trip: Round the World: Part 5 (the fifth 28 days)
After Leshan, I flew from Chengdu to Shanghai and then caught a bus to Suzhou, which is a little town near Shanghai famous for its gardens. I decided to visit only two gardens while I was there since I only had about 24 hours in Suzhou. The first garden I visited was the Garden of the Master of the Nets. It is the smallest garden in Suzhou but is breathtaking. The second I walked in, I couldn't stop saying "wow." The garden was laid out in the 12th century and was restored in the 18th century.See the trip: Round the World: Part 5 (the fifth 28 days)
