"Chinese Garden city" Suzhou by enzhu

Suzhou Travel Guide: 346 reviews and 1,113 photos

Suzhou is a city with long history. The city was founded in 514BC. Since then, Suzhou is one of the most wealthy city in China since the fertile land and the most import, SILK production. Suzhou has long been known for its beautiful scenery, it's associated with many old Chinese poems. Lots of Gardens were built since Song Dynasty. Many of them now are "World Culture Hertage" selected by UNESCO.

To the east of the city, it's the new industry development zoo in Suzhou. Comparing with the classic Chinese style buildings in Suzhou, the buildings in the zoo are much modern and the roads are much wider. On the edge of the roads, there are lots of new resident buildings and office buildings. It is so clean that it doesn't seem to belong to China. I was really shocked when I saw it, how much investments would have been invested to build such a development zoo?

    If you don't want Nanjing or Shanghai fly direct to Wuxi international airport halfway between Wuxi and Suzhou. There is a free airline shuttle bus to the airline office in Suzhou near the Stadium, then taxi to your hotel. You will save a day & its cheap.
