Suzhou has more than 4000 years of history since recorded, and was founded in 514 B.C. Fu Chai's father He Lv commanded Wu Zixu to build the capital of Wu, which has a history of more than 2500 years. Suzhou was once capital of multiple regime---the Wu Kindom in Spring and Autumn period( 770-476BC), the Yue Kindom in Warring State period( 403-221BC), the Wu Kindom in the Three Kingdoms (220-280,three kindoms is Wei魏220-265, Shu Han蜀汉221-263 and Wu 吴222-280)and the Zhang Wu at the end of the Yuan Dynasty. The famous historian Gu Jiegang proved that Suzhou is the first ancient city in China. Suzhou has totally 489 cultural relics protection units, 34 state-level scenic spots, 101 provincial tourist attractions. Suzhou's sightseeing spots numbers are only after Beijing and Xi'an city in China.
Suzhou city is near to Shanghai, it takes 25 minutes by high speed train from Shanghai to Suzhou. It is a famous garden city in the world. Many tourists around the world come here everyday for sightseeing. It is popular, you will love it. The city's canals, stone bridges, pagodas, and meticulously designed gardens have contributed to its status as one of the top tourist attractions in China. Since the Song Dynasty (960-1279), it has also been an important centre for China's silk industry. The classical gardens in Suzhou were added to the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1997 and 2000. Suzhou is often dubbed the "Venice of the East " or "Venice of China" and "the Heaven on Earth" .
My house is 1st floor----Hutong Style ancient house, traditional white wall and deep grey old style brick roof. If you like the old style house, living here is the good choice. It is very easy for old people or kid’s trip, you don’t climb the typical Chinese apartment floor. It is located in very center of Suzhou city, nearby you could see canals everywhere, also very easy to many famous sightseeing spots by walk. Such as 1 minute walk to Master of Nets Garden, 2 minutes to a famous bar street, 10 minutes to Historical Pingjiang Road etc, 10 minutes walk to the oldest garden in Suzhou—Canglang Pavilion etc. If you like walking, you can walk everywhere, such as Guan qian Street, Lion Grove Garden, Suzhou Humble Administrator’s Garden, Suzhou Museum etc. I believe that you will save a lot of taxi fee…
Around the house, life is very convenient and easy. Many restaurants, Chinese or Western food, and vegetarian restaurants, tea house, bars, coffee house, massage shops etc. Around Streets are very old and fun to see both day and night. You will love this place. Suzhou also had a good transportation system, bus, subway, train, public bike etc. If you love bike, you also could use my bike for free. However many guests think that the Chinese transportation rule is very complicated, they would rather walking and going by bus or taxi. If you stay here long time you will get used to it. Smile…
The house has a yard for you to have a good rest after one day’s trip, drinking some beer and looking at sky stars and enjoy the quiet city night…There are total three rooms inside house, every room has private bathroom.
