Civilized some 2500 years ago, Suzhou is the cradle of Wu Culture. Long time ago, Suzhou had gained to its prominent position in China's history. Literati, magnates and politicians swarmed there and numerous cultural heritages have been left, mainly elaborately-designed gardens such as Humble Administrator’s Garden, Lion Grove Garden, and Lingering Garden. Highly-developed silk industry endowed this city with large fortune. Due to its humid climate and its geography, there are many beautiful water towns (Zhou Zhuang, Tongli, Luzhi and Mudu Town) nearby Suzhou which are worthwhile your visiting.
