Next stop - China!!!
One of my fave things to do when I'm not actually travelling is to watch the Lonely Planet Travel series! While watching yesterday, they featured this most beautiful amazing city in China - Suzhou!
Of course I love the picture above - look at all those beautiful lanterns!!
The city is known as the Venice of China as it also contains canals and beautiful stone bridges.
Some of the stunning classical gardens are UNESCO world heritage sites.
Its also famous for its silk - another reason for me to visit!!
Its only about 80km from Shanghai - so I reckon pretty easy to get to.
Have any of my blog friends visited this place???
Its definately on my list of must see places in the near future. When I get there I'll be sure to share with you!!
I found these pics on Wikipedia. I hope you enjoy :-)
