Suzhou - Little Singapore!

Famous for its gardens, beautiful women and silk, the ancient city, Suzhou is just an hour from Shanghai by train.

Suzhou lies at the point where the rail line meets the Grand Canal, about 30km to the east of Tai Hu.

Suzhou looks like a "Little Singapore" because an entire industrial city was being built on the outskirts by Singaporean investors.

You would probably have heard of "Shang You Tian Tang Xia You Su Hang". Meaning you can find pretty women in heaven and can find them on earth in Suzhou and Hangzhou.

Places of interest includes the famous Ou Yuan which is one of UNESCO site. The silk factory is worth a visit too.

    Interesting to read about the Silk processing ... lovely pictures. Political leaders seem to be doing a better job than the models :)
