Suzhou City Pictures

Suzhou is located in the center of the Yangtze Delta and south of Jiangsu Province. Built in 514BC, it is an ancient city with a 2500-years history. The unique characteristics of the past are still retained in present-day city. The double-chessboard layout of the city, with 'the streets and rivers side by side while the water and land routes run parallel', are basically still intact. Strolling down the streets makes one feel the unique lingering charm of this landscape left by its long history. Attraction Intro: Suzhou Travel Guide

If you only spend one day in that city, I think to rent a taxi is not necessary. You can choose a classic garden to visit, if you're interested in. Otherwise to SIP for some sightseeing of modern appearance.

Yes, the weather is bad currently due to the cold wave which covers all of the China from last week. But, it will be finished soon. So, you could come later. However, the best season to visit this place should be Spring and Summer.

Transportation: at Hangzhou East Bus Station or Hangzhou North Bus Station, you could catch an expres bus to reach in 2.5hours.

Yes, two days is enough for visiting. One day, you could visit 1~2 of the classic gardens and the Guanqian Street. The other day, you could take a bus to the Tiger Hill.
