Suzhou : Michelin's recommendations
The city which amazed Marco Polo, and which, during the Imperial period, embodied the image of an earthly paradise in the eyes of many writers, has fallen completely for 21C modernity, with its many electronic and chemical industries; in addition, the Grand Canal has been transformed into a motorway for barges. Despite this, Suhzou has retained enough of its original charm to make it worth spending a few days here. Between the urban canals, a handful of gardens provide delightful havens of peace and tranquillity, while some of the cobbled streets have retained some of the atmosphere of legendary Suzhou.
