Lonely Planet review

An architectural triumph in Sūzhōu, this IM Pei–designed museum is an inspirational interpretation of a Sūzhōu garden, with a creative combination of water, bamboo and straight lines. Inside is a fascinating array of jade, ceramics, wooden carvings, textiles and other displays, all with good English captions. Look out for the boxwood statue of Avalokiteshvara (Guanyin), dating from the republican period. Draconian entry rules apply: flip-flops wearers get turned away.
