May 3, 2008Suzhou Humble Administrator’s Garden
We’re back to mainland China for this week’s “Elsewhere in Asia”! The picture above was taken from the Humble Administrator’s Garden of Suzhou (not far away from Shanghai). Suzhou is famous for its gardens and this one is the largest one. Originally built in 1509, this garden alternates small lakes, rocks, small pavilions and halls. Though dubbed as “humble”, the garden is quite big and made of several sections (Eastern, Central and Western). A must-see!
