I was told to visit the Wangshi Garden in Suzhou in the evening. How is it?
It is nice in its own way. There are some shows of local music and dance. If you late in the evening when there are not many tourists, you may get a sense what it is like for a family to live in a compund like that, with ponds, pavillions, and music in distance. There are a number of gardens in Suzhou, so you can visit a couple of them in the day time, visit Wanshi Garden in the evening for a difference experience.
