Tiger Hill, SuZhou 苏州

In JiangSu province.


A large yet low and picturesque hill dotted with historical attractions. A famous Song Dynasty poet, Su Shi, once wrote: 'It would be a lifelong pity, if having visited Suzhou, one did not visit Tiger Hill.'


On the summit sits Tiger Hill Pagoda, which has become a symbol of SuZhou and has the distinction of being China's Leaning Tower (a la the one in Pisa, Italy). Built during the Northern Song dynasty (959-961), it is a 48 meter tall, seven-story octahedron, in the style of the timber pagodas constructed during the early Tang dynasty.
