For a great way to celebrate a bright summer day with friends and family you could hardly do better than visiting a garden full of lotus flowers in full bloom. And Kunshan has several places for just this experience as follows:

Tinglin Garden

This occupies the top spot of places for admiring the lotus flower and is known for its unique variety of lotus with twin corollas on one stalk, called the Bing di lian. The garden has a pond full of these particular lotuses that are seen by Chinese as a token of love.
