    Hello Lisa. Thanks for your interest in our article!

    No, there is no airport in Suzhou at the moment unfortunately. The nearest International Airports to Suzhou are in Shanghai and Guangxi, which are nearby cities to Suzhou (approximately 1-3 hours train/drive away).

    The Wedding Street in Suzhou is located along the streets just below of the ‘Tiger Hill’ or “HuQiu” (虎丘) which is a famous Suzhou tourist attraction involving a tower which is slightly slanted (somewhat like the Leaning Tower of Pisa :p)

    The cab driver will know the place for sure. HuQiu is located around the North West of Suzhou city center and pretty near the Suzhou main train station.

    Hope this info helps! :)

    The dress my daughter in law received was made sloppy and not true to size. When we tried to return it, we got the run around. They tried to bargain with us telling us it would cost to much to mail and negociate a different price. Their respond wasn’t even in written in proper English. Stay away from this company, they are rude and unprofessional. Be warned-stay away do business with a company in the States.
