Serene, Scenic, Suzhou (by Nick Eng)

Share

Suzhou, the “Venice of the East” is a peaceful getaway from the large buildings and boisterous streets of Shanghai. Just 70 miles outside Shanghai, its canals, stone bridges, pagodas, and gardens have made it one of the top tourist attractions in China. In fact, its classical gardens are listed as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, signalling it as a location of special cultural or physical significance. A quick day trip from Shanghai, it’s a place not to be missed!

    Great photos, the picture with the lady on the boat is exceptionally lovely. Suzhou is definitely a place to visit in china. I recently read this post about a tourist site to explore in phuket and I think it is also a place you must visit if you’re a travel junkie. I’ll put the link down below 🙂 http://www.phunawa.com/blog/phuket-5-tourist-sites-explore/
