Majority of visitors pass through the very handsome Nanjing only when they are traveling from Beijing to Shanghai or vice versa however the capital of Jiangsu is nestled on the lower stretches of the River Yangzi. It flaunts a very impressive and rich historical heritage. Nanjing is also regarded as one of the best looking and the cleanest cities in China.

Post that it also served as the capital of the Republic of China. A beautiful city wall encompasses most of the city and the graceful buildings from the Republic era can be seen here.

Speaking purely in terms of history, Suzhou has always been synonymous to elegance and high culture. This also justifies why generations of writers, artists, scholars and high society in China have been driven by the exquisite forms of art and the delicate beauty of the gardens.

Like the other modern Chinese towns, unfortunately Suzhou has undergone way too much destruction of its heritage which has seen replacement only in the form of large arbitrary chunks of modern architecture.

Having said that, Suzhou has still managed to retain sufficient pockets of charm to warrant a minimum of two or three days’ exploration either on foot or via bike. More so the gardens which are the principal tourist attraction of Suzhou are a symphonic amalgam of water, trees, rocks and pavilion which reflects the Chinese appreciation of harmony and balance. Adding to the potential charm of the city are the magnificent museums, humpbacked bridges, surviving canal scenes and pagodas. The gardens here in particular are flocked by people, both locals and tourists, during the weekend, so it is better if you could avoid visiting them on weekends or public holidays, if possible.

At present, the natural endowments of the city will still mesmerize however given the impact of imperfect urban planning, you will have this pervasive feeling that the city is now past its prime.
