Hello all,
I know that Suzhou is hot on many people's favourite cities list (including our dear departed Raoul) but has anyone actually taught at this revered establishment? I have been informed the campus in question is the downtown one,still waiting on addresses of past/current teachers,but any input from the Saloonies well acquainted with the city would be greatly appreciated.  bjbjbjbjbj

If you don't like cold then I would not put it on a go-to location.  My first year in China was in Wuxi which is near Suzhou.  I dang near died of the cold (and I am from Canada).  Teaching while wearing heavy boots, down coat, toque and gloves was not fun.    llllllllll llllllllll asasasasas asasasasas llllllllll llllllllll

Sorry I don't know about that specific school but the cold during winter is terrible.  Apartments are not heated by hot water either (like in the north).  There is a hot/cold air conditioner unit in one or two rooms but if you have to pay for electricity it gets very expensive.
Be kind to dragons for thou are crunchy when roasted and taste good with brie.
