Trip Type:
City break

Customer Travel Tip: Walk! Don't take a bus for every place you visit! The city is not that big after all. Explore random, old alleys and be amazed by the real, authentic Suzhou living. Don't just take a boat on the canals, walk the neighborhoods forming those canals.

Liked: Small city with enough that a big city typically has. Very walkable and quiet. Not so crowded like other Chinese cities.

Disliked: The food was bland compared to other regional Chinese cuisine. Just a matter of taste.
