The Humble Administrator’s Garden 拙政園 | Suzhou, China

The Humble Administrator’s Garden is the largest garden in Suzhou. Originally built in the Ming Dynasty around 1509 AD, the garden is divided into eastern, western, and central sections. The central section is the most visited, with 1/3 of its area covered by a giant man-made lake. 

With its intricately laid paths and meticulous attention to detail, you could spend multiple days exploring this garden. Every rock to every structure has a reason and a story for its placement and orientation in the garden. Unfortunately, I was short on time and was only able to spend a couple hours in the garden.
