Popular Chinese legend states that, “In heaven there is paradise, and on earth there are Hangzhou and Suzhou”. Suzhou has been praised as a “paradise on earth” since ancient times. Being only two hours from Shanghai, Suzhou has enjoyed great prosperity and recognition over the years and this is an extraordinarily delicate and elegant city in parts.

  Suzhou is one of the oldest towns in the Yangtze basin, founded in about 600 BC but really making it’s fame one thousand years later when the Grand Canal was up and running. The great location that the city affords helped Suzhou become a prosperous trading area and the silk industry especially boomed here. By the 14th Century, Suzhou had become the leading silk producer in China and this quaint little retreat became popular with visitors from the imperial court at Hangzhou. Artists, scholars and painters all retreated to this “Venice of the East” to seek inspiration and to relax.

     Garden of the Master of the NetsThe Garden of the Master of the Nets (Wangshiyuan) is the best and most celebrated of all the Suzhou gardens. The effective use of space is the most impressive thing about this garden. Rock arrangements and beautiful fish pools balance each other as do the house and garden sections. The garden also contains many examples of using lattice windows to frame scenes of flowers or bamboo. In the early 1980s, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York used the Dianchunyi Court section (located in the western part of the inner garden) as a model for a Ming style garden.

Humble Administrator’s Garden:  The Humble Administrator’s Garden (Zhuozhengyuan) is the largest garden in Suzhou and the most famous and representative of Suzhou gardens. The best sections of the garden are the western parts where pools and pavilions are the main themes. These areas of the garden are quite beautiful and are a great place to stroll, people-watch or take pictures. This Ming Dynasty garden was actually made to enable the master of the garden to have a place to do some gardening and get away from the bustle of life as an official!

The Grand Canal: The longest man made canal in China stretching from Beijing in the north to Hangzhou in the South, the grand canal was once the main water transportation means in China. It was stuck with silt in some segment but the part from Suzhou to Hangzhou is still well preserved. Present day sailing along the canal in Suzhou will still enable you to taste the former prosperity of the ancient dynasty.
