Last night, we went to the Shanghai Railway Station (there are two - this is the older and larger one) to buy tickets to go to Suzhou today. It was craziness - crowded with people heading out of the city for the weekend. But, we were successful in getting first class tickets (we're not sure what that means, other than we think that guarantees us a seat.) However, round trip tickets aren't sold, so we'll need to go through this process again once we get to Suzhou. Should be worth it, though. Suzhou is about 40 minutes outside of Shanghai and is famous for its historic gardens, canals, and silk production.
