Today’s first stop will be Humble Administrator Garden which was originally built in the early 1600s. It is a typical ancient Chinese style garden in southern China. In 1509 of the Ming Dynasty, the central government officer Wang Xianchen retreated from politics. After his retirement, he spent 16 years to construct the garden for his later life. The whole garden falls into four sections: the east sections, the middle sections, the west section, and the south sections. The south section was for living and all the other three sections were for amusement.

In local legend, in the Spring and Autumn Period (770BC-476BC), Fuchai (King of Wu Kingdom) buried his father in the hill. And after the bury, a white tiger stay there for 3 days. So the later generation called the hill Tiger Hill. Though the hill is not large in scale and has an altitude of only 30+ meters, it is the highlight cultural and natural scenery in Suzhou.
