How do I obtain a Suzhou Garden Card & a Suzhou Leisure Card?


Suzhou Garden Cards cost 120 RMB and allow you to visit to certain Suzhou Gardens and tourist attractions for free. You can make up to 99 visits per year at no extra charge. Individuals are eligible for the garden card after they can prove they have lived in Suzhou for six months or more. This is done with the letter the police station give when a person registers their address. When you go to purchase the card you will need the police registration letter, a passport photo, a valid passport and 120 RMB.

Suzhou Leisure Cards are available only available in June and December regardless of how long a person has resided in Suzhou. The card allows you entrance to 14 scenic spots. They include Linyan Shan, Beisi Pagoda, Baima Jian, Piaomiao Peak, Panmen Gate, Linwu Cave, Shigong Hill, Baoshan Temple and more. You will receive a full list when you buy the card.

When purchasing, foreigners should bring: passports, passport with residence permits and your police registration form. The garden access can be added to your tong card for cost 120 RMB and for another 36 RMB you can get a new card. Children above 1.2 meters but under 6 years of age can enter for free.
