City Information

Suzhou Industrial Park district (SIP) Suzhou (Jiangsu Province)


Suzhou, the cradle of Wu Culture, is a city with a history of more than 2,500 years, tracing back to the

later Shang Dynasty. While talking about Suzhou, the old saying mentions it as a “Paradise on the

Earth” or the “East Venice of the World”, referring to its natural beauty, classical gardens, bridges and

waters, traditional operas and soft dialect tone.

The city is well-known to its classical gardens, in which two of them have been listed as the great world

heritage sites. Situated in the downstream of Yangtze River Drainage Basin and Yangtze River Delta

economic zone, Suzhou has been a national tourist centre and has attracted visitors around the world.

Not just for its natural beauty, its splendid history, or its cultural heritage, Suzhou’s economy represents

the highest growth and the fastest expansion in the past 5-10 years in the region and in China. The city’

GDP has surpassed its any other neighbour cities except Shanghai in the region and more than 80 of the

world top 500 corporations listed on the Fortune have set their offices in the town.

Suzhou is one of thirteen prefecture cities of Jiangsu and the cities including Changshu, Taicang,

Kunshan, Wujiang and Zhangjiagang are under its jurisdiction. The flower emblematic of the city is

osmanthus and the city tree is camphor laure.

Suzhou is in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River and on the shores of Lake Taihu between north

latitude 30°47’ – 32°02’, east longitude 119°55’ – 121°20’. The city borders its great neighbour, Shanghai,

on the east, Wuxi on the west, and other three cities of Zhejiang Province on the south.

Dubbed “East Venice of the World” Suzhou is crisscrossed by rivers and lakes. Yangtze River, the most

spectacular river in the region, flows through the city’s north boundary but the Grand Canal runs down

from north to south. The city has the jurisdiction over the Lake Taihu, being equal to about 2/3 of the

proportion of the lake, nestling in its southwest territory. Yangcheng Lake, located in Changsu, attracts

hundreds of thousands of travellers, coming each year to enjoy its beauty and aquatic food.

Five county-level cities under Suzhou’s jurisdiction are Zhangjiagang, Changshu, Taicang, Kunshan and

Wujiang, nestling in from northeast to southeast of the city in turn.

Suzhou is under the influence of East Asia Monsoon. The city has a mild and humid climate and is

easily accessible by water, land and air traffic. Seasons are distinct, with usually hot summers and plenty

of precipitation throughout the year. The average annual temperature is close to 20°C.
