I visited this place with my business collegues. The weather was increadbly hot and humid, for this reason we had a small electrical car to climb to hill. And then we walked down by visiting all parts of this area. There is also Budha Templete inside. It is really interesting place.

We chose to check out Tiger Hill on New Year's (Metal Rabbit) Eve and the weather happened to be wonderful! After a month of freezing cold and chilling wind, our Tiger Hill day happened to bring the promise of spring. There wasn't a huge amount of people or any crowds anywhere: just people leisurely walking and enjoying the sights and the weather. Tiger Hill has a very long history and you can really feel it in the atmosphere and the small walking trails. We loved Tiger Hill and will definately go back. Don't miss the wonderful tea house: the tea was nice (inexpensive too) and the building was awesome. The best thing about Tiger Hill is just being there and taking your time to enjoy it. The kids loved climbing the rocks.

Last fall, while visiting our son in Shanghai, China, he took us on a fun and educational day trip to the lovely town of Suzhou. By train, you can get to Suzhou in less than an hour, if you take one of the newer, faster trains or in a little more than an hour, if you take a basic train. We took the more leisurely train ride over and were able to meet some of the locals and observe the beautiful views of the countryside. When we arrived, we took a taxi to a place called Tiger Hill. Legend states that Tiger Hill is the burial site of King Helu and a white tiger appeared on the hill 3 days after his death. On your journey to the top of Tiger Hill you will see the beautiful Spring of Simplicity and Honesty, where monks used to gather water. Here you'll also see centuries-old poetry carved into the rocks. Once at the top of Tiger Hill you can view the 7 story Yunyan Pagoda and Buddhist temple. Another site to see in Suzhou is the Silk Factory and Museum. Here you can see and learn of the art of silk making in addition to purchasing as much beautiful silk as you want. On your way, make sure you pick up and eat a steamed dumpling. Delicious!

Didn't enjoy this as much as the gardens, canals, or even the Suzhou Museum, but I'm happy to have paid a visit regardless. The place is steeped with some interesting legends, including several surrounding a king buried at Tiger Hill. Take the time to hear about these legends, either from a tour guide or from your own research, because otherwise your visit won't be particularly special. A place that's been here for 2500 years obviously has some very interesting historical tales behind it. As for the famous leaning pagoda...I was hoping to climb up there for a sweeping view of the city, but I was disappointed to find that it was CLOSED. Overall, it's still worth a visit, and it was much smaller of an area than I expected.

Finally, DO NOT MISS THIS: the 45-minute round trip canal ride that you can take right in front of the main entrance to Tiger Hill. It far exceeded my expectations, and for 30 RMB it was much more enjoyable than the 100 euro I paid to ride in a Venice gondola. Most of the houses along the canals are still in use by locals, and you get a glimpse of the traditional Chinese way of life. People do their laundry in the canals, and fish, cook, fix their bikes, and just do things involved with their ordinary lives, and you get to see all this along your boat cruise. Very cool experience. Do NOT leave Tiger Hill without taking the canal cruise.

Tiger Hill is deemed to be the leaning Tower of China. It is an absolutely beautiful site steeped in history, with many legends to go with it. The pagoda/tower is indeed leaning.

It can get hot and muggy in summer, so be sure to have drinking water with you.
