About Humble Administrator's Garden

This is one of "China's Four Gardens" and a world cultural heritage site. The Humble Administrator’s Garden is known for its water landscape that highlights the ambiance of the Southern Chinese villages built on bodies of water. It is elegant and delicately designed. In the garden, different kinds of ancient architecture were built on water. They are scattered strategically and not one is the same as another. The garden is divided into three parts: the east, the middle, and the west. Each part has its own characteristics, especially the central garden, which basically maintains the simple and natural style of the Ming Dynasty gardens and represents the best of the whole garden.

    It deserves to be the crown of the four gardens in Suzhou. It can spend most of the day in the garden slowly. The whole garden is divided into three gardens, east, West and east. There are Lanxuetang, Xiyunfeng, Furongxie, Zhenxiang Hall, Hanqing Pavilion and Tianquan Pavilion in the East garden. There is a Tianquan well in the pavilion, which is a must-see place for sightseeing. In addition, the waveform gallery, the listening Pavilion and the two pavilions in the West Garden are all full of connotations, but the most charming name is the "Eighteen Mandalas Flower Hall", which was the place where camellia flowers were planted in the garden at first. There are couplets under the plaque in the garden "Warm Flowers in the Spring Festival, Warm Flowers in the Maoyuan Garden after the Rain". There are many pavilions and pavilions in Zhongyuan Garden, such as hill buildings, Yuxuan, Yuanxiangtang, Yulantang, Xiaofeihong, Wuzhu secluded dwelling, and so on. The most famous one is Yuanxiangtang Hall in Zhongyuan Garden, a building style called Quadrilateral Hall. There is no pillar in the hall that can block the perspective. The tour guide said that the design of Yuanxiangtang is based on the four talents of Wumen. The Hand of Literary Symbolization. There is a phrase - "Yuanxiangtang is picturesque outside, with cool wind on all sides and ten thousand lotuses. What I'm talking about is that when the lotus blossoms in the Humble Administration Garden in summer, the windows on all sides of Yuanxiang Hall are cool. No matter where you sit in the hall, you can see the lotus pond, which is countless.

    Because I heard of Humble Administrator's Garden from childhood, the fame is very big. The student ticket is 35 yuan adult ticket. In fact, it needs to pay for cash. There are self-service machines that can use WeChat and Alipay. I was on Dragon Boat Festival to go there many beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, too many people feel Chinese gardens. The first act of entering the park is Grandma Liu's entry to the Grand View Garden shooting site. I like a view very much, that is, the distant viewing tower, the whole garden is water-centered! The lotus is in bud and it's beautiful. The garden is divided into three parts: east, middle and west. The east garden is open and sparse. The middle garden is the essence of the whole garden. The West garden is exquisitely constructed and has its own characteristics. Yuannan is a residential area, which reflects the pattern of more and more Han dwellings in the typical southern region of the Yangtze River.

    As the first garden in China, the attraction of Humble Administrator's Park lies in its long history and its surroundings by mountains and rivers. As the largest gardens in Suzhou, the whole garden is water-centered, full of mountains and rivers, exquisite halls and pavilions, flourishing flowers and trees, and has strong characteristics of the Han nationality water village in the south of the Yangtze River. It is for this reason that I am more determined to come to the Humble Administration Garden. When I come to Suzhou, I will surely come to the Humble Administration Garden. While enjoying the garden art, I will cultivate my own sentiment. Won't it be painful? If you want to know about gardening culture, there is also a free Suzhou Garden Museum beside the Humble Administration Garden. Before you go to Suzhou Garden, you can visit it first. It's enough for Suzhou to have this garden!

    Zhuozhengyuan is absolutely the first scenic spot in Suzhou. This is the largest and most classical classical garden in Suzhou, and of course the tickets are the most expensive. However, this is still the most popular scenic spot, after all, this is a must-see place for tourism in Suzhou. We went on May Day holiday. The queue was exaggerated and the garden was crowded. Therefore, before you come, you must buy tickets in advance. It is suggested that you buy tickets through the relevant pages of major tourism websites. Now there are free tour guides in Humble Administrator's Park. You can find this service in the Visitor Service Center at the entrance. The guide here will introduce the allusions of the Humble Administrator's Park and the wonderful points of the park. It can help visitors to visit the Humble Administrator's Park better. It is suggested that you consider this service. In addition, along the way to the Humble Administration Park, many people peddled "low-priced tickets", some of which were cheap as long as 30. You must not be credulous. The official of the scenic spot has clarified that there is no low price ticket of 30 yuan. Now the standard price of the admission ticket of the scenic spot is 90 yuan. When we entered the scenic spot, we met a couple of old people. The tickets used were invalid and they could not enter the garden.

    It's still beautiful. It's too cold today. It's raining all day. It's a step by step view. Plum blossoms are already blooming. Summer should be more beautiful. There are Mandarin ducks. My god, the northern children meet mandarin ducks for the first time. Ha-ha. They also meet a cold cat occasionally. They refuse to be sucked by the little fish. They even scratch people in a hurry.

    The scenery in Humble Administrator's Garden is still exquisite. There are many points in it, which constitute the frame of the whole garden. The Humble Administrator's Garden in winter looks like a little vicissitudes of life. The buildings in it have the exquisite sense of wood structure in Ming and Qing Dynasties. Each building and the scenery in the garden influence each other. You have me and I have you to foil each other.

    Humble Administrator's Park, one of China's four major gardens, is a model and representative of Jiangnan gardens. It was built in Zhengde period of Ming Dynasty. The World Cultural Heritage, 5A Scenic Area, is a must-see scenic spot in Suzhou. One of the four Chinese gardens is also in Suzhou: Liuyuan, the other two are Beijing Summer Palace and Chengde Summer Resort. The whole garden area of Humble Administrator's Garden is quite large, and now it has an area of more than 80 mu. With water as the center, it is designed in four styles: spring, summer, autumn and winter. It is characterized by the ingenious use of various plants, Taihu Stone and buildings. Nowadays, it is a good place for people to enjoy rhododendron, peony in spring, lotus in summer, chrysanthemum in autumn and plum in winter. Because it was the end of spring in Suzhou, only a small piece of lotus leaves floated in the lotus pond. In the lotus pond also saw a pair of mandarin ducks humble political garden design and viewing, suggested that a tour guide service in the entrance gate, otherwise you are just watching flowers, do not understand the essence of this garden... For example, what is the design concept of the corridor? Without the guide's explanation, you can't understand it at all, and how to observe the design of each season? It was a little late to go to the Humble Administrator's Garden this time, and the peony flowers were basically defeated, but the flowers near the entrance were very beautiful, which made up for the regret of not seeing the peony flowers with national color and fragrance.

    Humble Administrator's Garden is the representative of Soviet gardens. It's worth seeing. King Xianju, the owner of the garden, was born as a scholar, so he was able to borrow the Beishi Pagoda into the garden according to local conditions, and he was good at borrowing the scenery to see the water. When playing, it is suggested to choose a circle in the afternoon and take pictures when people are young in the evening.

    Famous is true, but it is recommended to buy tickets at scenic spots. Half-price tickets for students, old people and children are actually quite affordable. It rained on the day we went, but it added to the charm of the garden. The souvenirs in Zhuozheng Park are also good, with affordable prices and rich cultural atmosphere.
