Shanghai: Day 2 – Suzhou day trip

Suzhou was one of the cities covered in Marco Polo’s travels. It has a population of 1.5 million but 2500 years of history. It has the best gardens in China as well as silk. We visited two famous gardens as well as the No. 1 Silk Mill where we bought silk duvets and bedsheets.
Silkworms are such adorable creatures – and smooth to the touch!

    Silk duvets?! You should have spoken to me before you bought them! They are SO slippery you will find that they are on the floor before the end of the night. Nice to touch, totally impractical.
