This article was the Collaboration of the week between 26 December 2007 and 01 January 2008.

68,000 ?

Text just added says Suzhou has "over 68,000 km of canals". I think that has too many zeros. That's 68 million meters of canal. If they're 5 m wide, 340 million square meters, 340 square km. I have trouble believing that. Anyone know the right number? Pashley 09:55, 17 December 2007 (EST)

42.5% of Suzhou, i. e. 3609 sq km, is water area though that includes lakes. Rincewind 04:50, 4 June 2009 (EDT)

Another math error?

Current text has Suzhou to Pudong airport distance as "120 kilometers (about 65 miles)". 120 km is about 75 miles. 65 miles would be about 104 km. What are correct numbers?

Checked on wolframalpha and it gave a distance of 71 miles direct. Rincewind 04:47, 4 June 2009 (EDT)

Contact: Wifi Hotels & Cafes

Is it really necessary to list the names of Hotels & Cafes that have WiFi? This information is a bit redundant since about 99.99% of Hotels & Cafes in Suzhou have FREE Wifi access.

If most places have it, then that may be worth mention and then you could delete the specific references. Another issue with this page is that it has 2 "Buy" sections. ChubbyWimbus 20:18, 23 December 2009 (EST)


I was in Suzhou about a month ago and (Alas!) the Shamrock appeared to be closed. I see we still list it. Anyone know its current status? If it is actually gone, we should remove the listing, but I don't want to do that without checking. Pashley 06:02, 30 August 2010 (EDT)

An anonymous user deleted it, probably correctly. Pashley 06:57, 13 September 2010 (EDT)

Needs updating?

The Suzhou metro is "due to open in 2011". It's now near the end of 2012. Is the metro open, where does it go,...
