Topic From: Suzhou Attractions
hi, i am planning to visit shanghai for a week in the month of april 2013. I between my friend and I are planning to visit Suzhou and Hangzhou. Our main interests are shopping and sightseeing. Is it enough to visit Suzhou for a day trip and maybe spent 2 nights in Hangzhou?
Asked by sally on Dec. 2, 2012
Hi Sally, yes, that is a wonderful arrangement. It is enough for a one-day sightseeing tour in Suzhou, if you don't plan to go shopping. Or you can spend one night in Suzhou and one night in Hangzhou, both of them are fantastic.

Topic From: Suzhou Attractions
HiIf we stay in Shanghai and wish to visit Suzhou for 1 day tour and back to Shanghai same day, by bullet train or mini bus, which one is better?As I know, it takes only half hour by bullet train. Is that right? if not, please correct.But if we travel by your vehicle (mini bus or for 6 people) to see the scenery on the way to Suzhou. How long does it take?Is it possible to use your vehicle provided for 1 day visit to Tongli Water Town, Humble Administrator''s Garden, Lingering Garden, Master of the Nets Garden and Guanqian Shopping Street? The duration for visiting each place, please advise.Thanks & RegardsSanphet
Asked by Sanphet Olarnsiriwat on Nov. 28, 2012
For one day side tour to Suzhou, we don't recommend bullet train , yes, it takes only 30 mins by train , but you should go to the train station at least 30 mins before the train then you need time to get off in Suzhou. It take about 1 hrs by car from Shanghai to Suzhou, I suggest that you should take private car.
For one day tour, you can not visit all the places you listed in one day, you can only visit Tongli Water Town+ one garden +Guanqian Shopping Street,. If you want to visit more gardens, I suggest that you should stay one night in Suzhou. It US$150 per person (based on two people) for one day private tour to Tongli , Humble Administrator''s Garden and Guanqian Shopping Street.
Topic From: Suzhou Food
I plan to visit China in March for 10 days. I am worried because I have a severe allergy to MSG. I have read that MSG is used in almost all dishes throughout China. Is it possible to find food with no MSG in Suzhou? I am sure some Chinese people must have this allergy, too.
Asked by gemmeroni on Nov. 22, 2012
Hi Gemmeroni, you can let the hotel know that you don't need any MSG in the food. Or if you need us to book the hotel for you, we can talk to them and assure you of the no-MSG foods.

Asked by vee on Nov. 6, 2012
Hi Vee, Beijing is in the middle of winter in December. It is chilly, with temperature just getting above freezing during the day, and very dry. It is freezing on the Great Wall because of the elevation and exposure. If you visit then, you need to dress like an Eskimo! In the city dress for dry winter conditions.
