Christened by Marco Polo as “The Venice of the East”, Suzhou is a charming and peaceful city that goes back 2,500 years. Its luscious gardens and winding canals attract thousands of tourists every year, making it one of the most popular destinations in China.
Greet your guide at your hotel lobby at 9am and travel to Suzhou, situated 100km west of Shanghai.
The first stop once you get to the destination is one of its magnificent gardens. We recommend you choose to visit the Lion Grove Garden, famous for its stone labyrinth, or the Humble Administrator’s Garden, considered by many as the most beautiful garden in the south of China. Both gardens were established over five hundred years ago and are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Next, take a small riverboat along the city’s quaint canals and contemplate the abundant vegetation.
After a pleasant cruise, set off to the city center, to Suzhou’s main shopping street, Guanqian Jie for an exquisite lunch.
Enjoy a lovely walking tour in the afternoon down Shan Tang Jie Street, the most picturesque avenue in Suzhou. Visit a silk factory and explore Tiger Hill. It is home to a curious leaning pagoda, built in 959, centuries before the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
