A while back I was approached by the fine folks at ChinaTravel.net, an English-language travel site about China that is “editorially independent” but strongly affiliated with Ctrip.com — one of China’s largest online travel booking Web sites.
The site’s editors wanted me to put together a summary article on “my Suzhou”, and as of last week it was published on the site. For anyone that’s ever asked my opinion about what to see while visiting Suzhou the content will feel familiar, as it generally just rehashes what I’ve suggested to people many many times over the years I’ve lived here.

It also features a number of photos I’ve taken around Suzhou — the requirement of which finally forced me to get off my ass and start uploading the countless number of China-centric photos I’ve taken over the years to my Flickr account. I’m a long way from being done, but it’s getting there.
