Overnight in Suzhou

After working out the train kinks (see lessons learned from Hangzhou post), we packed up our passports and headed out to Suzhou, a canal town 30 minutes on the fast train from Shanghai. There’s not a ton of stuff to do in Suzhou, but we lucked out with beautiful spring-like weather, so that makes everything good.  We toured around the old town, checked out the gardens, went to traditional tea houses along the canal, and climbed Tiger Hill. I loved the zen vibe of the gardens and appreciated the break from beeping car horns. A few shots….
Amazingly bright fresh-cut flowers

  1. Staying up with the most current and greatest fashion development might
    seem like additional time than you have, but there are lots of spots
    that it is possible to visit quickly and easily get all
    in the fashion thing you may need. So, all of them will buy a pair of beautiful chinese
    embroidered shoes without any hesitant. Make room for your trendy new wardrobe by
    going through your old clothes and getting rid of unwanted
    clothes.

  2. Right here is the right site for anyone
    who would like to understand this topic. You understand so much its
    almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa).

    You definitely put a new spin on a subject that has been written about for many years.
    Wonderful stuff, just great!

  3. hi!,I really like your writing very much! proportion we keep in touch extra approximately
    your post on AOL? I require a specialist in this house to unravel my
    problem. May be that is you! Taking a look forward to look you.

  4. Hi outstanding website! Does running a blog similar to this take a massive amount work?
    I have virtually no expertise in programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near
    future. Anyways, should you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.

    I know this is off subject but I simply had to ask. Thank you!
