InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Suzhou

Hello to all Americans in Suzhou! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Suzhou? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Suzhou which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: highly developed Suzhou is a popular destination among Chinese and expats alike. The important economic center is a millennia-old city known for its great museums and historical sites, the pingtan form of ballad-singing, local handicrafts including fan making and the famous Suzhou embroidery, and much more! With the available bus, tram, and metro services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the suburban development centers Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) and Suzhou New District (SND), for example, which are an easy commute away from Suzhou’s center.

Although Suzhou has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Suzhou, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
