So we took a one day trip to Suzhou. Left in the morning and came back to base at night. Suzhou is less than one hour from here, on a new fast fancy train. There were only first class tickets so it was even better.
Suzhou is known for its chinese traditional gardens, and there are some water canals running through it.
We began with a visit to the Humble administartor garden (the Audio guide said he was really stupid). Its a very nice garden, with several pavilions, lakes with water lilies etc. you can see the pictures.
Next we went to see the newly opened Suzhou museum. We didnt go for the contents of it, but to see the comlex itsef, which is very interesting, influenced by the old gardens.
After some shopping and Japanese meal, we went to another garden ("Master of the nets") for an evening show. We walked through the garden, following a guide holding a red lantern. At different places in the garden people played music, sang and danced. It was very peacfull and plesent.
