Shan Tong Watertown (Suzhou New District)
(December 4, 2007) If you are visiting Suzhou for one day only, this is a must-see. You can start your morning visiting the Humble Administrator's Garden; then take a 40 minute boatride to Shan Tong, Suzhou's very own watertown on the northwest corner of old Suzhou city. As you enter Shan Tong, it's like walking back in times. It's so old, so authentic and so interesting. Most shops carry arts and crafts, 100% silver jewelry, embroideries, teacup sets... created by local artists that are usually not found elsewhere. Whatever you purchase, it will be a gem to keep and remember. Enjoy Shan Tong.
