Tiger Hill & Suzhou, China

Next up on our travels in China was a little trip out of Shanghai to Suzhou. 

Suzhou is a little town outside of Shanghai – and by little town, I mean a major city of a few million people!

 We started our tour of Suzhou by visiting Tiger Hill.

Tiger Hill is home to Yunyan Pagoda, also known as the Leaning Pagoda, which stands on top of Tiger Hill.

This 1000 year old pagoda has become a symbol of Suzhou.

Fun Fact: it is taller than & predates the Leaning Tower of Pisa

During our time in Suzhou we took some time to explore the beautiful scenery surrounding Tiger Hill.

We also made our way to one of the nearby water towns – these canals throughout the city have given Suzhou the nickname “The Venice of the East.”

 Taking a little boat ride along the canal was a must, we got a chance to see the town from a different view.

 We really enjoyed our time outside Shanghai exploring Suzhou – it was great to experience a city of China with a population of less than 10 million!

Stay tuned for more China fun!

    What an amazing quaint little place! The canals and bridges reminded me of Brugge in Belgium. Loved the pagoda!
