Suzhou Shopping

    Shopping in Suzhou would be happy things to do for travellers. Since ancient times, Suzhou has been one of the silk production capitals of the world. Chinese silk embroidery and Suzhou' s fabulous brocades are of particularly high quality, the most famous among them patterned after a style prominent during the Song Dynasty. Handcrafted silk fans carved out of sandalwood are another Suzhou local product, as are decorative writing brushes. Many cities in southern China have a form of tea for which they are well-known, and Suzhou is no exception: keep your eye open for biluochun tea – the Kangxi Emperor loved it, and it' s priced accordingly! If you' re after antiques, Suzhou will keep you busy, but remember: most ''antiques'' in China are skilful reproductions – something that the store proprietor will usually confirm if you ask.
