Chiang Kai-shek's Summer Vacation ResortChiang Kai-shek's Summer Vacation ResortChiang Kai-shek's Summer Vacation Resort

This resort is located in Fenghua city. Chiang Kai-shek and his wife often spent summer times here.
Yvonne and I visited suppliers in Ningbo and Suzhou in Sept. 2008. Our schedule was very tight, but we still manged to have a sightseeing to the symbolic resorts in Ningbo and Suzhou.
The first stop was Ningbo. This city has not many famous sights but it is well-known by being the hometwon of Chiang Kai-shek. To be more specific, the Fenghua city in Ningbo is Chiang kai-shek's hometown.
The seond stop is Suzhou, world-wide famous for its wonderful classical gardents inlcuding Humble Administrator's Garden, the Surging Wave Pavilion, the Lion Grove Garden etc. What a pity we only had half a day for sightseeing, and of course, we decided to visit the best one: the Administrator's Garden.
