We caught the fast train to Suzhou and after negotiating the touts at the gate, picked a sweet looking man who was supported by an English speaking woman in a 'pink' booth. We paid to see gardens, 5 gardens, and hopped on a bus ready to explore the delights of the garden city as it said in the ... Details

At the mention of Suzhou, classical gardens always come as the first to one mind. However I had something different to experience this time. A childhood friend works in Suzhou after graduation from college school. She is my guide and I can just go around with her without worrying where to take ... Details
