Huqiu Wedding Market[edit]

Tiger Hill Wedding Market

Huqiu wedding market, also known as the Huqiu wedding dress street or Tiger Hill Wedding Market, located in Tiger Hill Road, Jinchang District, Suzhou, is one of the famous wedding dress domestic production base, and there are near 1200 factories producing wedding & evening dresses in Suzhou, but manufacturers like JUSERE could offer professional design & custom service are no many in Suzhou. Since 2012, Huqiu wedding market has become the largest production and sales base, and over 30 countries around the world to have business dealings, perennial orders. Manufactured by individuals in workshops, the wedding dresses win customers' praises since they’re able to provide it at an affordable price while remaining fashionable. In fact, the wedding dress supply is often unable to meet the demand of wedding seasons throughout spring, autumn and winter. Also, it attracts foreign merchants seeking to customize wedding dresses.[1]

Traffic Route[edit]

By Plane: Suzhou has no airport, so your best option is in Shanghai. Hopefully, you'll fly through Hongqiao Airport, the closest airport located in the West of Shanghai - because the other choice, Pudong Airport, leaves you 45 minutes East of downtown Shanghai alone. Shanghai's subway system serves both airports, and has links to major train stations, but taxis (at least CNY 100 to 120) might be the choice for the weary, overburdened traveler.

By Train: Go to Shanghai Station (that's the main station — not to be confused with Shanghai South Station), where you can purchase train tickets to Suzhou. Buy yours at one of the automated kiosks there, especially for the high-speed trains. Don't worry about tickets being sold out — there are so many trains going to Suzhou every day, it's impossible not to get a seat. The trip from Shanghai to Suzhou takes a little under one hour.

Note: Once you arrive in Suzhou, the most comfortable way to the Suzhou Wedding Dress Street is by taxi (CNY 20 to 25) — but you can also get there by taking a bus to Tiger Hill (tourist buses CNY 1 and CNY 2 from the train station).[2]
