I just spent a wonderful week in China touring Shanghai, Suzhou, Nanjing, Wuxi and Huangzhou. My parents planned this trip as I’m often hesitant about traveling to China. This hesitation is mostly from previous experiences when I visited as a young child, but in honesty, this developing nation never ceases to amaze me. Especially the cities we visited this time, were not only rich in culture, but also home to some of the most breathtaking Chinese landscapes. Each place we visited was not just visually stunning, but was also a peek into the past as each location had its own unique story. Although one week is only a short introduction to Chinese History 101, but at the end of the trip, I felt very much in the middle of it all.

Highlights of my trip .. best historical site: West Lake, best food experience: Wuxi ribs, best souvenir: fresh water pearls and Dragon Well tea, and most recommended site for my next trip: Huangshan.
