我是2017.12.6号去的，下了火车后转地铁，再转4路公交车，车上的人真多，都没位置了，站了一会才有位置做，大约30-40分钟到的景区。因为是在网上买好的票直接刷身份证就进园了，很方便。人真的超多，枫叶也挺美的，层林尽染，不愧是著名的赏枫地。枫叶大多都在山脚下，看完枫叶后又去爬了山。是以乱石组成的山。苏州市境内的天平山，海拔 201 米，山势峭峻奇险，古称白云山，又名赐山，系北宋名臣范仲淹先祖归葬之地。境内开辟有:天平山风景名胜区，景区占地近百公顷，向以"红枫、奇石、清泉"三绝著称，有万笏朝天、高义叠翠、万丈红霞、玉泉轻吟等十八胜景。"吴中第一山"、"江南胜境"之美誉，是中国四大赏枫胜地之一。
