Suzhou

4.1
Gardens · Parks · Specialty Museums
Venice of the East
One of the oldest settlements in the Yangtze basin, Suzhou remains a complex, labyrinthine set of old canal districts, World Heritage gardens, and sprawling modern developments. Take a tour of Suzhou by bike, boat, or foot to find all the pockets of ancient buildings, landscaped gardens, and temples that still cling to the banks of the many tributaries that work their way away from the main river. While many historical sites have been destroyed over the years, a renewed effort to preserve and restore Suzhou's cultural and architectural heritage means you'll find charming scenes of the elegant and high cultured days gone by, all hidden behind the uninspiring modern constructions built during the 20th century. Use our China trip maker site to arrange your visit to Suzhou and any other destinations in China that take your fancy.

Where to stay in Suzhou

The range of accommodations available in Suzhou reflects the diversity of architectural styles and historical periods on display throughout the city. Crossed by countless canals, the city's most atmospheric accommodations lie close to the knotted waterways, with modest guesthouses and hotels on the lesser waterways, and more luxurious options located in the more scenic canal areas. A wealth of modern development has left the city dotted with high-rise hotels, with the tall tower blocks offering rooms with an abundance of extra facilities and views over the city.
