Suzhou Old Town Tour and Brugg Cables Visit – Shanghai

By Jann Stutz and Julian Jorns

After a long day of travel from Shenzen to Shanghai and a quick trip to the world famous and impressive bund, day 15 of the on-sight seminar marked the first day of company visits in Shanghai. Exactly speaking, not Shanghai, but Suzhou, which is a city fairly close to the multimillion metropole. The Insight China delegation made its way to Suzhou early in the morning to see the beautiful Humble Administration Garden, where many pictures of the amazing pavilions, flowers, bridges and ponds were taken. To close off the morning activities, Insight China went to the Pingjiang Road, an Unesco World Heritage in the city of Suzhou, and enjoyed all the delicious street food offered there.
