Traveling is one of my passion whenever time lets me and definitely whenever my finances allow me. In 2011, I decided to visit a good friend of mine and at the same time have a glance of the city famous for its gardens and its silk, the ancient and moated city of SUZHOU. A major city located in the southeast of Jiangsu Province, China.
Full of excitement and heartfelt eagerness to hang out with friends as well, I headed to this city in July 2011. And I can say my expectations were exceeded by it’s classical beauty and warmth my friends showered me with.
This is Pingjiang and a part of Jinchang district is completely bounded by a large, rectangular canal known as the Weichang River. It’s classical beauty can’t be missed.
This served as my map 🙂
The Humble Administrator’s Garden was originally built in 1509 during the Ming Dynasty created upon old relics surrounded by natural landscapes, hills and rock formation.

As it happens, plants caught my attention…these bonsai plants are just exquisite!
I’d like to use this column to thank Mr. and Mrs. Johnstone for warm welcome, kindness and generosity in more ways than one for hosting me 🙂
