Head west from the Pan Pacific entrance, then south at the Dong Dajie intersection to reach
the Gusu Garden 1 [map] (Gusu Yuan; 1 Dong Dajie; 7.30am-5pm; charge). Stroll through
the landscaped grounds and follow the signs to the Five Gate Bridge (Wumen Qiao),
Suzhou's tallest bridge, for the age-old view of boats and barges on the canal.
Directly across the main road is the Ruigang Pagoda (Ruigang Ta), a seven-storey, 37m
(121ft) octagonal brick-and-timber pagoda that was first built in AD 1004.
Pan Gate (Panmen), the only remaining stretch of Suzhou's third-century city wall, is a
short walk southwest. Climb up the 300m (980ft) of original city wall for a view of the arched
bridges below.
