The temperature will be no more than 10 degrees. Feel colder if it rains. So, wear sweater and coat, underwear inside trousers. Gardens, Guanqian Jie are muse see places in Suzhou. West Lake, Lingyin Temple, in Hangzhou can not be missed. In fact, most attractions of Hangzhou area all around the lake. As to Shanghai, more choices according to your time. My suggestion is to check out and refer to some China tours( and itineraries found in this web and make your own plan.

Kun opera, Pingtan (a form of storytelling and ballad singing in local dialect) and Guzheng (a Chinese zither with 25 strings) are the traditional local cultural arts and part of the locals' daily lives. You can visit the Garden of Master of Nets at night to enjoy all three of these classical forms of entertainment.
