Suzhou is a great city with lots of history. There are many things to do in this city. During the day, we stopped by a few gardens and temples. At night time, we went to the Shantang Street. This street looks like ancient China with...More

Definitely dressed-up for the tourist. But lots of energy and buzz, especially when you visit at night. Sit in a restaurant or snack the numerous street food options on offer. Lots of nice photo angles at the street and by the canals.

The Canal cruise is a must do in Suzhou. Allows you to get a feel of what life in the past was like. Meander the street, make sure you try out the Naan bread and won-tongs. Definitely worth a few hours of your time.

This place is very crowded with tourists, as expected since it is so accessible by metro/ buses, and it is quite pretty with the canals and old style houses. Certainly a very photogenic place, and worth coming in the late afternoon (so you can also...More
