Q: Are there any ancient villages or interesting sites near Suzhou?

Somewhere scenic, interesting or historical that's suitable for a daytrip, and please don't say Shanghai or Hangzhou!

Have you been to Zhouzhuang?

It's pretty close to Suzhou (30km southeast) and it's an old water town (the Venice of China!)

Here's a link:

It's close and pretty cool. Kind of touristy in places, but cool temples and that "historic" feel. Worth a day trip.

the back villages of Anji, outside of Hangzhou, where the movie about the crouching dragon / flying tiger was filmed .  It's bamboo country up there and the rural villages are a like a scene out of early 20th-century China.  Good food, too.

I am sure "LuZhi" is the ancient town actually located inside of Suzhou.  Can't be difficult to find.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
