but it's famous for its gardens and channels, so locals call it "China's Venice"



moreover, it's a boomtown because of its convenient location near the East coast near Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou


leaving the station...


taking a hike to downtown

Great pics, but a few mistakes: There is no Victoria Island in Hong Kong, it's simply called Hong Kong Island. The Midlevel is not Midland. Suzhou is not the Venice of China, as Venice was never a model for Suzhou.

you are actually reading the text?
agreed for Hongkong, I'm not from HK anyway....but Suzhou is often compared to Veince here, although it may be a lame comparison and rather used by foreigners - or Chinese who want to awaken interests of Western tourists....
