Right now after brunch I'm remembering dearly of our second day spent in Suzhou and I wish to tell you a few words about it along with the ton of photos. :)
To begin with, day 2 in Suzhou was exactly as Yahoo Weather predicted: sunny and with 18/19 degrees Celsius, the perfect spring day I would say. So what more could we have wished for this day which was supposed to be all about visiting the city and seeing new places? :) After having our breakfast at the hotel we decided to go to the Tiger Hill, which is one of the most famous places in Suzhou. We took a taxi to get there, but there are probably some buses which go to this place as well, because when we reached this place (which is in fact outside the city) there was full of people, cars, buses, like OMG. Even if it was quite early, the good weather on a Sunday does that to the tourist attractions here in China. From the entrance it doesn't promises that much, except for the seven-stories leaned pagoda which stands tall on the top of the hill, but once you start wandering this place you discover its beauty. You go from garden to garden, sometimes through a peaceful forest, from site to site and everything is so beautiful and neat. Moreover they have here an impressing Bonsai Collection and Museum, which I'm sure it will be even more beautiful once the warm weather comes along.
We spent there two to three hours, I would say, and after that we decided to go and see the Lingering Gardens, another famous place in Suzhou. Well that was not the best choice as it was already around 1 p.m. and everybody was already awake and eager to visit places, so I can't really explain into words how full of people this garden was. You can however notice a part of the crowd in the photo with the red boat below. :)
We got out as fast as we could and took another taxi to our next milestone, which was the Twin Towers. After being exhausted from all the crowds surrounding us and all the bustle everywhere, this was the best choice we could have made. This place was quite small compared to the other gardens we've seen, but it was, luckily, also almost empty as it is not as famous as the others. We were finally able to sit down in the sun for a bit, rest, enjoy the view and of course take some photos. :)
As I was telling you in my previous post, this outfit didn't go unnoticed either since I was wearing that yellow jacket but I couldn't care less. I hardly waited to wear one of my favourite jackets again and this was the perfect moment to do so (and also the only one for now as the winter is back). The embroidered dress is a new addition to my closet and I think it will be great for spring and summer. Besides the beautiful embroidery I also love the fact that it has bell sleeves and pockets. :) As in for the rest, the day was looking quite busy from the beginning on so I had to keep it all quite casual.
I'll leave you with the photos now..
