Suzhou - China

Suzhou is a 2500-year old ancient city which still keep the old city. So skyscrapers can only be allowed to build far away from the old city, but new skyscrapers are erected all around the old city.

Suzhou city position on the map


Old city skyline, no highrises or even midrises are allowed






But skyscrapers are all around the old city

Why is it Venice of China? Suzhou as a city existed long before Venice came into being.
