Been mesmerised by the little bridges, flowing waters, swaying willow trees of old Suzhou.
Which area should i stay to have feel?
I passed by the Suzhou new district some years ago, and it was clearly man-made.
I don't seem to see such scenes near Guang qian jie.
Does that mean i have to stay at the new district?
Or do i have to venture out to the water villages for the feel?
Hello, We are thinking of relocating to Wuxi if my husbands company transfers him to a new plant being developed in Zhangjiagang.
