Suzhou Attractions

What to see in Suzhou ? Suzhou has been called the “Venice of the East” because it was built around a latticework of 24 canals.  But Suzhou’s main tourist attractions are its classical Chinese gardens— intricately designed masterpieces that harmoniously blend surrounding buildings with nature (9 gardens are UNESCO World Heritage sites).  So take a gondola ride through the canals and chill out with some tea as you listen to water babbling down the rocks and into the gardens before merging into peaceful frog ponds.But still, the city is still attractively photogenic with plenty of these tourist-friendly gardens dotted around Suzhou to enjoy—about 60 remaining compared to their heyday when there were some 300 privately owned gardens.See more atrractions in Suhzou
