While Suzhou is a favourite place of mine I think it is a bit silly to go to Shangahi for 1.5 days - and then leave it for one whole day. Shanghai is worth more than 1.5 days itself. Recognise that you can't see everything and concentrate on Shanghai this trip.

As you know, Shanghai is a metropolis with very morden building and facility. The scenic area worth your visiting is as followings: Yuyuan Garden and the nearby market, Jade Buddha Temple, Shanghai Museum, a panoramic view of Shanghai in Jinmao Mansion or Oriental Pearl TV Tower or International Financial Center and the Bund. And actually you can do all of that visiting in a whole day or 1.5 days. But Suzhou day trip is really worthy to enjoy the different taste of South China private garden and sample the water town tranquility.
