Master of the Nets
By EEUREKA | 1/5/2007 10:49:43 PM

If you decide to go to Suzhou for a visit make sure you stop by the Master of the Nets garden. It is the smallest garden in Suzhou, but is most well known because of its beauty. It was built in the 12th century, then abandoned until it was restored in the 18th century. This garden is one of the most beautiful gardens in all of Suzhou. You can walk through the old house and admire the beautiful architecture and magnificent woodwork. Take a few moments to sit and just enjoy the beautiful garden with its strange and wonderful trees and plants. This can be a very relaxing place to escape to after all the hussle and bussle of the city.

Tongli Hotel

You can bargain in hotels.
I went to a hotel called SanLianYuan in Tongli near the bus stand. They asked me 180 Rmb for a single room and I said 140.
They readily agreed and gave me the same room for 140 rmb. Beware of their inital prices!!

Have you been to Tongli? If not, skip Suzhou main city and go to Tongli. It is serene, calm, quiet and peaceful.
40 minutes away from Suzhou city, costing 8.5 rmb in a bus the place is from ancient china you can say.

Traveling to ancient Tongli Town

Ancient Tongli Town is 18 kilometers (11 miles)southeast of Suzhou, capital city of Jiangsu Province. It is the best-preserved one of all the ancient towns in Suzhou.

You can choose lots of hotels in Tongli Town. If you want the hotel of good conditions, Tongli Holiday Resort (Tongli Du Jia Cun) may be the right place for you.

240 RMB a day (From Mon. to Sat., 280 RMB a day on Sunday)

Sanyuan Hotel in Tongli is cheaper-140 RMB a day.

The local hostels (Lv Jia Ke Zhan) is 60-90 RMB a day.
(1RMB equals to 0.12 USD)

Both dining and lodging should be reserved beforehand.

What to know

Ni Hao,

Being a foreigner in China, is quite demanding as you would have to struggle with the language barrier. My best tip for people travelling from one place to another is to know the chinese character of the place you intend to go to and make sure you jot down the plate number of the may prove very helpful once you leave some stuff behind. When I was at the bus station I paid for a ticket to go to Taizhou, what I didn't know was that the bus I rode was just stopping over at the place, it was not actually its final destination. I had to get down right before reaching the toll gate leading to the main highway as I suspected something was amiss. In my haste, I left some of my stuff in the bus. Luckily a bus station I went to helped me find my stuff having showed them the ticket. I was lucky then...others might not be so be careful!
