Classical Chinese garden design, which seeks to create miniature natural landscapes, is not illustrated any better than in the nine gardens in the historic city of Suzhou, Jiangsu province.

Suzhou's classical gardens are noted for their exquisite design and layout. Landscape and buildings are perfectly integrated to create a great harmony between man and nature.

They were added onto the World Cultural Heritage List in 1997.

Address: Suzhou, Jiangsu province
