You know, in China, people go to hospital always, because of the development of science technology. But when people had a disease that modern medical science can not cure, like cancer or tumor,etc. they will try to reach out to find the old chinese doctor. And also, they go to Chinese herbal clinic for they thought their body, though without disease, not in a good condition. Though Chinese people don't turn traditional chinese medicine when they are sick, the idea of Chinese medicine are in the blood and deep heart of Chinese people. It is in the food, in the drink, even in process of shower, in the sleep.

In Shanghai, I think they could book a hotel close to the Shanghai South Railway Station or the People's Square, both of which are transportation hub.
In Suzhou, a hotel around Guanquan Street will be helpful for traveling.

It is about 300-350 yuan(100km/8hours)within the city proper. You should pay for every single extra km and hour. It is not very easy for foreign visitors to find a van there. You may not know where and how to get. Try to ask for help to the hotel you stay.
To Suzhou
By train: 3 hour or so, ticket fare: 44/67 rmb, at Railway Station, not the south one
By bus: 2-2.5 hours, ticket fare: 60 rmb, at North/East Bus station
