One of the tag lines for Suzhou (sue-joe) is that it is the Venice-of-the-East ... we didn't find it to be on par with that claim, but it was a lovely little town (only 6 million people) and we had fun exploring it for a few hours.
Suzhou does have a lot of canals running through it that made for some pretty scenery.
It is also known for it's many bridges...
We got to play on a remnant of the original city wall
Atop the wall - complete with grass and benches!
Of course a garden is not complete without a pagoda.
