Start your tour from visiting some of Mudu’s beautiful gardens and embroidery
exhibition (the latter is heavily recommended and you’ll be really amazed: the local embroidery masters clearly demonstrate that embroidery technique has no limits in depicting whatsoever style – would it be a photography, Van Gogh’s picture, abstract ornament or surrealistic landscape).

The latter part (and the most impressive one) is to get lost somewhere in narrow Mudu non-touristic streets and dig for your best shots. If you’ll see it gets darker – hurry up to catch the last bus back to Suzhou :)
