It depends on your tolerance for wasted time.  That is a long haul to do every day.  Depending on where-to-where, it could take more than an hour each way.

For my tolerance level, I don't accept more than a 15 minute commute unless I am driving (or having my taxi paid for).

I haven't forgotten my commute time when I lived in America:  1 hour and 10 minutes driving in rush hour traffic.  Suzhou to Shanghai is a breeze by comparison, napping on the D-train.  I did Wuxi to Shanghai often enough to know.  It might be worth it to you if you like your diggs in Suzhou.

A:Dont know where they got those answers from, you DO need two shot Chinese vaccine done at least 15 days prior to travel, but, you wont be entering anyway as ESL teachers are not considered essential workers. I have been here 17 years, double vaccinated 5 moonths ago, coulfnt even get an ETD to go home and bury my mother and was firmly told i would be denied entry, as if i am leaving my wife a kid behind.  -- markymarc1972
