Venice of the East
One of the oldest settlements in the Yangtze basin, Suzhou remains a complex, labyrinthine set of old canal districts, World Heritage gardens, and sprawling modern developments. Take a tour of Suzhou by bike, boat, or foot to find all the pockets of ancient buildings, landscaped gardens, and temples that still cling to the banks of the many tributaries that work their way away from the main river. While many historical sites have been destroyed over the years, a renewed effort to preserve and restore Suzhou's cultural and architectural heritage means you'll find charming scenes of the elegant and high cultured days gone by, all hidden behind the uninspiring modern constructions built during the 20th century. Use our China trip maker site to arrange your visit to Suzhou and any other destinations in China that take your fancy.
