3/26.- Suzhou, Humble Administrator's Garden, Zig Zag Bridge


The garden is known for its complex use of water: thus, there are a number of bridges (including zig-zag bridges), and connected pools and islands. Because the garden is so large, it is almost more like a big park than a classical garden, with the scattered buildings being dwarfed by the large expanses of greenery.

Like all classical Chinese gardens, there are plenty of rocks, trees, flowers, pools, pavilions, etc., and many, many attractive vistas. Classic Chinese landscaping is a complex artform: if one is interested and willing to spend the time, there is an awful lot to learn about it. (And if not, the gardens are still very pretty to see!)
