By bullet train, Suzhou China is just less than 30 minutes away from Shanghai. Don’t expect it to be an escape from a big city, as Suzhou is a huge city too. But it’s a convenient place to take a day trip when staying in Shanghai, like we did.
The city was a must visit for me because the world renown architect, IM Pei was born in Suzhou! I’ve seen a lot of his work- most famous, the Louvre in Paris and also the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse. And one of my favorites, Four Seasons New York!
Apart from those buildings in Europe and North America, back in his home town, is Suzhou Museum which he designed.
The museum currently houses Chinese art. Watch the video to see around the museum:
