Suzhou Travel Guide
Suzhou, a city west of Shanghai, is known for its canals, bridges and classical gardens. The Humble Administrator’s Garden, dating to 1513, contains zigzag bridges over connected pools and islands. The Lingering Garden features ornate viewing pavilions and the Crown of Clouds Peak, a striking limestone rockery. Tiger Hill is home to the 7-story, leaning Cloud Rock Pagoda at its summit.
Spanning the main canal to the southwest, the Pan Gate (a surviving section of the ancient city wall) stands near the early Buddhist Ruiguang Pagoda, which affords views of the old city. The northeastern neighborhood around Pingjiang Road, a centuries-old historic district, is filled with shops and restaurants. Combining elements of a classical garden with modern geometry, the I. M. Pei–designed Suzhou Museum exhibits Chinese art and antiquities. The nearby Suzhou Silk Museum explores Chinese silk weaving and embroidery. In the west part of the city, Hanshan (Cold Mountain) Temple is a celebrated Buddhist monastery.
Suzhou is a bustling modern city, though you can still see traces of a very old lifestyle centered around the canals. Come prepared to feel a bit betrayed by the guidebooks singing the praises of a quaint thousand-year-old city. On XiBei Road thoroughfare, every other storefront advertises foot massage, which in China is often a cover for sexual services; see China – Massage. It sometimes seems that half the city are masseur/masseuses and the other half are potential clients.
Suzhou has a large expatriate community, many associated with the factories but also the English teachers, Filipino musicians and others found anywhere in China. Compared to other Chinese cities, Suzhou has a higher proportion of expats from other Asian countries: the SIP development was a joint venture between the Suzhou and Singapore governments, and there has been much investment from Singapore and Malaysia. Japan, Korea, Taiwan and India are there as well; Samsung has large factories in Suzhou, including their first semiconductor fabrication plant outside Korea. Of course, there are also many Chinese and Western companies.
