TripAdvisor Reviews Golden Bridge Holiday Hotel Suzhou
Travel Blogs from Suzhou
Similarly to naming Qingdao both the Switzerland and Riviera of China Suzhou is named the Venice of China. I think Suzhou deserves it's title a little more than Qingdao though. It's well pretty and has all sorts of fancy gardens you can visit, my favourite being 'The most Humble Administrator's Garden.' I took most of my photos in there. It even has a few canals to justify it's comparison to Venice. ...
The demonstration took us from moth to egg, to caterpiller to cocoon, to soaking the cocoon, unraveling the cocoon to a series of looms that lead to a bolt of cloth. If the cocoons are not harvested at exactly the right time, the pupa begins to eat its way out and the cocoon is ruined for use as silk. To put this all in perspective, it takes thousands of cocoons to make a single scarf. Don't ask how many for a king-sized bedspread!
... br> Had a fabulous day, and really enjoyed spending time with everyone. I also met Helen, who is Richard Kemp's assistant on the Project, a lovely lady.
After we got back to the hotel Richard arrived with Jintao and they took me out to dinner. It was great catching up with Richard again.
... Partnership Schools checking in.
Luke Reddington was talking to the other students from Writhlington: Louis Paddon, Issac Soccorsy; Chloe Simms; Lydia Simmons, Adam Benney and Otta Brown. He looked up and saw me and his mouth opened in surprise as Rachel hadn't told them I would be there!
I went to Shantang Street with them in the evening. It was so lovely to spend time with the students and with Rachel.
I'm feeling very spoiled here – we’re living in a large hotel room that has its own tiny kitchen and a washer/dryer. The only thing lacking is a dividing wall that would make it a suite, and there’s no dining table. The maid comes three times a week but there’s not much for her to do, so she empties the wastebaskets and cleans the floor.
