It's near the snd. You can take line 1 and get off at the last stop. It's near to the hong kong street, the bars, ktvs and night street of Suzhou! Rest it's just a normal part of Suzhou, with shopping malls and people. Yes, the bars there are very cheap yet safe! A beer in 20 in a ktv.... More

An ancient water town that is linked by water ways. Qing emperor also loved this town that he has a vacation palace that he will rest when he visited Suzhou during his reign ! Many historical monuments to see on foot or by boats. If you love Silk, you should visit some genuine silk stores that you may be able... More

Must visit when you go to Suzhou. There are 4 temples near this town which is in ancient style and the most attractive oh this town is the hill near the ancient scenic spot Wer u can see the whole Suzhou town from the top of the hill for an aerial view.

When I arrived at this town, there is an area with washrooms and small stores. and I walked a long with a narrow street with lots of street food such as tofu and skewers, which is kind of boring. While I found out I can pay for a boat and see this town from the river, kind of cool and... More

Let's start with practicalities. Mudu is easier to reach these days as Line 2 of the Suzhou Metro comes out here. The sign from the Mudu Metro station says it is four kilometres more to the an cient town, but this feels wrong to us. We walked it on the way back in a leisurely thirty minutes. You can take...

Mudu has 4 famous sights. Two are average and 2 are excellent. The current price for all sights is 60 RMB which is OK BUT..if the price goes up anymore than you should skip the sights. Mudu is not the bet water town in the region but it makes an easy half day trip from Suzhou. The town is relaxed,... More

Based on the Trip Advisor recommendations, last saturday, I made the trip to Mudu. I have been living in Suzhou for 3 years and I think the reviews on Mudu are overrated. Tongli, Jouzhang and even Pingjiang Lu are much better alternatives than Mudu. It is clean and have a lot of small food and not very attractive souvenirs. It... More

A nice and interesting place to visit to see a little bit more about Chinese culture. Some very old buildings.

Once you get through the morass of modern China which surrounds this redeveloped spot, it is a tranquil and relaxing place to enjoy a day, with a lot of things to see. Worth the trip!

Mudu is a working water town. Don't expect the Disney experience and be prepared for warts and all. It's easy to walk around and a camera is essential. We got the feeling that not many Westerners visit here because we created a lot of attention, pure curiosity on the local's part. There are gardens and temples to visit. There is... More
