About Changshu

Called Yu (虞) for short, Changshu (常熟) – which means “long matured” – got its name from the fact that this is a place known for its “fertile soil long free from floods or droughts.” Changshu is located in southern Jiangsu Province. Situated in the Lower Yangtze River Delta, Changshu is nicknamed the “Paradise of the Lower Yangtze” and is one of the wellsprings of China's Wu culture. Renowned sights here include the Yushan Shanghu (虞山尚湖) Tourist Area and the Shajiabang (沙家浜) Scenic Area.

Drunk Beauty Day April Day, ## , everything revives! Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai have the most outdoor atmosphere, no more than mountains, lakes and water towns! However, the land of fish and rice, heaven and Suzhou, is the most irresistible to me. The spring of Shajiabang, the green willows, the safflower, the blue sky and the white clouds, indulge in the reeds and the sea, the breath of spring, everywhere. Not too much gorgeous, simple and natural, antique. A few times over Changshu, they failed to punch the 5A scenic spot Shajiabang. Nowadays, it is a good place for self-driving leisure and health holiday in the Yangtze River Delta region. 3 days and 2 nights, Shajiabang deep tour, say go and go! arrived at the scenic spot in the scenic spot - Luhua Bay. The white clouds of the same kind as the water townships are as exquisite as the simple and exquisite hotel environment of Suzhou Xiaoyuan! There is a large lawn behind the house, which is suitable for afternoon tea and parent-child play; there are 2 swimming pools in the square; there are currently 4 other courtyards, close to the wetlands, and the spring is overwhelming, from time to time there are paintings and swimming through the window. More like a restored Soviet-style private home. The room is suitable for 3 family vacations, with 3 rooms, 1 hall, 1 bar, 1 loft and 1 small courtyard. Powder wall tiles, ink style, log style, furniture bedding toiletries are all available! Just like the Su-style garden, one step at a time, people in the middle of the painting, painting in the eyes. This experience is really great. Experience the real scene of "Shajiabang", deeply feel the aloe flower, rice flower fragrance, shore Liucheng line. 6718 yuan / set / night
