Ever wondered what Chinese Venice would look like? Then visit Suzhou! It is an absolute must see. Our travel agency provides Suzhou group package tours and one-day customized private tours.
Being one of the biggest cities of the world even now, Suzhou has never been a capital. However, it has always been a vital commercial and transport center due to its location on the Great Chinese Canal of the delta of the Yangtze, the richest region of the country.
The weather is perfect for travelers. It’s never too cold and never too hot in Suzhou so one can take their time to enjoy the classic gardens – there are almost a hundred of them in the city: the Lion Grove Garden, the Lingering Garden, the Couple's Garden Retreat are just a few examples.
Some other main attractions of the city are Zhouzhuang Water Town, Gates Panmen and Giant Wheel Entertainment Park. Our agency also recommends visiting an impressive silk factory.
Oh, and don’t forget about the shopping of course! Suzhou has fantastic indoor and outdoor markets as well as several huge malls. What to buy? The best ideas for souvenirs are local embroidery, silk brocade, wooden fans, green tea and brushes for calligraphy. Where to buy? Shi Quan Street and Guan Qian Street are the places to go.
