From Shanghai, we travelled to Suzhou, a city which is located in the Northeast of Jiangsu Province.
Sha Jia Bang’s Hairy Crab
For lunch, we had a seafood frenzy where we tried Sha Jia Bang’s hairy crabs!
I don’t consider myself a seafood lover and I don’t know how to de-shell a crab. The waitress saw my fumbling hands and decided to help me dissect the crab with her bare hands. Well, I wonder if her fingers were germ-free…
The locals over there like to dip the crab meat in vinegar, which perhaps to cancel out that fishy taste.
ShaJiaBang – a large ecological wetland in Jiangnan
It’s dark,gloomy and slightly misty. It’s way too cold here. I remembered that my toes almost went numb.
When we reached there, we were told to watch a performance first before exploring the town. A performing act titled, ” Let The Bullets Fly” at Ancient town.
Wang Shi Yuan (Master of Nets Garden )
One of Suzhou’s classical gardens listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
How on earth did the Chinese do that? Be marvelled by how much details and thoughts are placed into building this classical garden.
Take a stroll in the garden, walk along the contours of the pond, as you reflect upon thyself.
Dinner at a restaurant in China-Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park This Industrial Park has seems somewhat similar city layout as Singapore. According to the guide, this industrial park has been prospering after the Singapore stakeholders left. What a pity!
One of my favourite Chinese dishes-Sweet and sour crispy fish.
Head up to the bus to sleep and board off the bus to make a trip to the toilet. After playing and eating, we head back to have a good sleep. That’s life on the tour bus.
