It's everything I expected from a Crowne Plaza. The subway connection is just a few blocks away, which quickly takes you to the heart of the city with 3 or 4 stops. Also, a quick walk takes you to the Jinlin Lake water front for a great view and some good restaurants.

... canal the longest man made canal in the world, (1900km), hand dug by millions of people through forced labour some 15 hundred years ago it stretches all the way to Beijing.
At the end of the boat trip we walked over one of the many narrow bridges and then a long walk through the congested vibrant market. Lots of fresh food, really fresh, still alive.
We went back to Casa Zoe's for breakfast after moving from the Kempinski Hotel back to the Gran Park Hotel for work tomorrow. We then went to visit the Nanshan Temple, and walked around a market area, a bit like Confucius Temple area in Nanjing with small shops and stalls.
We then took a lovely boat trip down the Grand Canal (which we have been on in Hangzhou also), stopping off at a hand-made brick museum. Another lovely day.
... far more attractions than we imagined.
We came out and the taxi drivers started haggling over prices, but then I saw the No 88 bus which I knew went back to town so we hopped on that. We went to the Blue Frog for supper and saw Maumo and Hebe, the lovely manager, and then some of the teachers from Wuxi No 1 came in: Clive, Dennis and Arun so we had a few drinks and chatted to them. A really lovely day.
... surrounded by westerners Aside from this it's been great, for me the highlight really was the Yangtze River (who would have thought - we're cruise converts). I hope we will keep in touch with Kate and Jason, they have been great company. After two weeks in a big group it will be strange for Ro and I to go back to being just the two of us. Also the tour has been pure luxury in terms of always having a guide and never having to organise anything for yourself! ...
... restaurant was closed?! So we kept on walking down stopping at the cute shops that were along the way. Despite being hungry and all the people it was a really nice atmosphere, I bought a really cool photo display book, a notebook and of course postcards from a nice bookshop. We did end up finding somewhere to eat but it was in no way as good as that other restaurant would have been hahaAfter eating we resumed our walk along canals, there were people getting special boat rides ...
