Asked by Anna on Oct. 23, 2012
Hi Anna, China is a huge country, there is a big range from north to central and south. Beijing is in the north while Shanghai, Nanjing and Suzhou is in the central. January is the coldest month in Beijing. Heating is supplied 24 hours a day. It is warm inside the houses, but outside it is freezing and windy. So it is suggested that you prepare warm clothes, such as thick sweaters, down-filled coats, gloves and hat to keep warm outside. It may snow sometimes. And it is very dry.
There is no big difference for the weather in Shanghai, Nanjing and Suzhou. The average temperature of around 2 °C (36 °F), but it could be bone-piercing cold. So almost same clothes to prepare.
A small suggestion to your tour plan. As you have 3 days in Suzhou, so I suggest that you leave one day for Hangzhou, which was regarded as Heaven on earth together with Suzhou. And it is not far away, even less than 2hr by bullet train.
We can tailor make this tour for you if you have interest. Please just let me know the number of people in your group and hotel level. Then we will send you a tentative itinerary. Okay? Waiting for your good news.

Asked by Maria Lopes on Oct. 9, 2012
Hi Maria, there is direct bus from Shanghai to Tongli. You can also take bullet train to Suzhou first, then transfer bus to Tongli. There is no direct transportation from Shanghai to Jinxi. We can arrange this tour for you with private car and English speaking guide, for both Tongli and Jinxi. How do you like it?
