A developing city of commerce and beauty

The city of Suzhou (sometimes known as Soochow) is a major city in the Jiangsu Province of eastern China, located 100 km (62 miles) west of Shanghai. Given the continuing growth of both cities, their suburbs have actually begun to overlap. It is a major hub for trade and commerce in China, but also boasts a number of impressive cultural attractions. Often called the "Venice of the East", the city's canals, stone bridges, pagodas, and meticulously designed gardens attract many thousands of tourists every year, and the Classical Gardens of Suzhou are among UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.
