What To Expect

Suzhou was the capital of Wu culture 800 years ago and is one of China's leading historic cities. The city was developed around the Grand Canal that forged much of China's traditional north-south commerce. Suzhou is built around a series of canals inspiring Chinese to consider it the "Venice of the East". Now a modern thriving city, Suzhou maintains a traditional core surrounded by a moat and is world famous as a UNESCO world heritage site for their traditional Chinese gardens.

You will first visit one of China's most exquisite gardens, The Humble Administrator's Garden. This Cultural Heritage site includes both a residential quarter and a delicately landscaped garden. You will learn the beauty of this well-known Suzhou garden while wandering around the pavilions, bridges, houses, etc.
