About Suzhou

The beauty of Suzhou is found in all the gardens, mountains and rivers within the city, as well as in the rich variety of ancient cultural charm and artistic atmosphere. From the numerous ancient waterside villages on the periphery of Suzhou to the Humble Administrator’s Garden, a World Heritage Site, and the Suzhou Museum, the exquisite delights of Suzhou are endless. Suzhou is located on a network of waterways and the city streets are built to follow the rivers, producing the unique style of “little bridges, flowing water and households.” The Tang Dynasty poet Zhang Ji’s poem, "Night Mooring at Maple Bridge", has caused tourists from ancient and modern times to flock to Maple Bridge and hear the bells of Hanshan Temple. The mountains of Lingyan, Taiping, Tianchi and Dongting are scattered along the banks of Lake Tai outside of Gusu District and showcase the majesty of nature.
