From Suzhou to Guangzhou.

Suzhou is permeated through and through river channels, a mix of Old Bridge, and along the channels extend narrow streets - it's really almost the very first city on the water. That's why Suzhou is called the Venice of the east.

Blue Wave Pavilion (Canglang) - The oldest gardens in the city, was built in 1044 instead of a garden fence surrounded by mountains, and it consists of bands of stone, green bamboo thickets and artificial hills.

Suzhou is often called the "Venice of China". Marco Polo himself called this city "Venice of the East". The same channels, the same water, right up to the walls of houses rises, bridges and boats of all types and sizes.
