This add-on is a 3-day tour of Suzhou that can be booked in conjunction with any of our Signature China Signature group tours, private tours or tailor-made tours.
Suzhou, a 2,500 year-old cultural city is located in an area of rivers that crisscross the Yangtze River Delta of south-eastern China. In the city, boats bob along waterways interwoven with small bridges that run parallel to the streets and traditional houses built along them. Coupled with a stunning collection of UNESCO-listed gardens and famed for its silk, Suzhou is an oriental treasure. Just southeast of Suzhou is the charming Venetian-like town of Zhouzhuang. Surrounded as well as divided by lakes and rivers, various stone bridges offer amazing views of this pretty town that is popular with Chinese artists.
