Stop at a Local Restaurant for lunch, then drive to Suzhou.The Suzhou classical gardens are UNESCO World Heritage listed and are the reason why the city has become one of the most revered cities in China.
Once arrive at the Suzhou,you will start your tour from the  Humble Administrator's Garden ,The Humble Administrator’s Garden was built in the early years of Zhengde in the Ming Dynasty (in the early sixteenth century), with a history of over 500 years. It is one of the representative works of classical gardens south of the Yangtze River.
The  Humble Administrator's Garden is located in the northeastern corner of the ancient city Suzhou (No. 178, Northeast Street). It is the largest classical garden in Suzhou, covering an area of 78mu (about 5.2 hectares). The whole garden is water-centered, with green hills, delicate pavilions and lush flowers and trees, full of poetic and pictorial splendor and rich features of the south of the lower reaches of the Yangze River. The garden is divided into three parts, eastern, central and west, and each has its own unique character. The East Garden is spaciousness; the Central Garden is the essence of the whole park; and the West Garden has exquisite buildings. The southern part of the garden is the residential area, reflecting the typical residential pattern of the south of the Yangtze River. To the south of the garden is Suzhou Garden Museum, which is the only garden theme museum all over the country.
Walk along the Famous Pingjiang historical street,It is a portrait of “water and land, and rivers adjacent to the streets,” and a good example of the waterside towns south of the Yangtze River with their “small bridges over flowing streams, and whitewashed walls and black tiles”. Its cultural heritage and landscape are exemplified in places such as Ouyuan Garden, a world cultural heritage site, and the Kunqu Opera Museum (Quanjin Guild Hall), a cultural heritage exhibit of Kunqu Opera.
