Suzhou Tourism is pleased to announce the winner of its latest campaign to directly target European travellers – the “The Great Suzhou Treasure Hunt” sweepstakes, which ended on 30 April 2016. Generating interest from more than 3,000 entrants since it opened on 1 April 2016, the online promotion awarded two travellers (one winner plus one guest) a six-day holiday to Suzhou. The winner was chosen at random based on those who completed the interactive online scavenger hunt of Suzhou’s top attractions, allowing consumers to virtually tour the city. Details on the winner can be found at

This once-in-a-lifetime trip is inclusive of return coach airfare, overnight lodging at one of the city’s top hotels, three meals daily, and a guided tour through the city each day. The itinerary will offer quintessential Suzhou experiences and feature visits to a selection of UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Humble Administrator’s Garden and Lingering Garden, as well as visits to Tiger Hill, the Suzhou Museum, Pinjiang Road, the Silk Museum, and Tongli, and authentic dinning at iconic restaurants such as Songhelou and Deyuelou. The trip is the ideal holiday adventure for anyone who wants to visit China and experience true Chinese culture.

Designed to keep consumers informed on the destination’s unique culture, cuisine, and heritage, this programme builds off an initial digital partnership with the BBC, which took place last year and resulted in sponsored content by the news organisation and a dedicated microsite for European travellers.

Travellers can stay connected with Suzhou Tourism throughout the campaign by visiting the destination website,, “Liking” the destination’s Facebook page, and “Following” Suzhou on Instagram and Twitter.
