What a lovely part of China there is so much to see and so peaceful !! To take a lively walk or ride your bike, you can take a restful break at the many small eateries dotted in and around this lovely area of Suzhou x if your staying within this area you will want to take a walk x

Very popular spot on weekends to walk along or sit in the grass for a picnic. You can rent bicycles or other pedal vehicles. Also - very popular spot for wedding photos.

Jinji Hu is not as big as some of the lakes in China (West Lake in Hangzhou for example) but that makes it easier to walk/cycle around. The paths tend to be wide, there are many parks and places to sit, and there is a lot of public art (statues etc.) and some glorious views no matter what time of... More

Very nice 0lace and it is possible to walk or ride a bike around. But the smog makes visibility poor. And prices in restaurants around are very high

I was staying at the Crowne Plaza on the corner of the lake and woke every morning to the beautiful view accress the lake. On the far side, there id the cultural centre, moon harbour, the fun fair and some great restaurants, including a good tipenyaki and a German place that brews it's own beer.
