Dubbed as the “Venice of the East”, to almost all the Chinese people, Suzhou is considered one of the most beautiful cities of the whole country, just as the local saying, “Up above there is heaven; down below there are Suzhou and Hangzhou.”
Most of the travelers choose to stay in Shanghai and take a day tour to see the highlights of the city (a classic garden, Tiger Hill, Pingjian Road, and a boat trip). For travelers who stay in Suzhou, we usually suggest our clients visit the Suzhou Museum and a water town such as Tonngli, Luzhi, or Mudu; in the evening, take a stroll or a boat trip in the fascinating Shantang Street or a night tour and admire the evening performances in Master of the Nets Garden.
For luxury travelers, there are many international brand hotels in town, such as Park Hyatt, Kimpton, Shangri-La, Marriott, InterContinental, W Hotel, etc. For Aman Junkies, we recommend Youxiong Hotel, a local luxury boutique hotel, similar style as Aman, designed by the talented Japanese architect Shuhei Aoyama, renovated by Ieoh Ming Pei family’s former residence.
