6.9.11 Suzhou-Hangzhou

| No Comments

First thing on the agenda was Suzhou Industrial Park. While there wasn't much open when we got there in the morning it was still a good stop to see some of the architecture. There was a canopy like the one in Vegas that lights up at night. Later we went to a silk factory where we got to see the silk making process start to finish. We also got to watch a fashion show and it was the closest I 'v ever been to any runway fashion event. After the great lunch next to the silk factory we took a road trip to Hangzhou. Hangzhou was even nicer than Suzhou in my opinion. We started with some shopping in a tourist area and then the rain came. It rained most of the night. The sidewalks and storefronts of Hangzhou where we drove through were made of beautiful brick and cobblestone. The city has a nature feel to it so when the buildings accommodated with the trees and the lake it made for nice scenery.
We also got to see a show that told some ancient stories of Hangzhou. They had a carnival style environment surrounding the theatre where you could play games and enter a haunted house.
