SIP Christmas Eve Carnival Sees Romance to the Extreme
On Christmas Eve, the "modern Suzhou" was immersed in modern flavor, full of appeal, romance, fantasy and revelry, and all sorts of Christmas-related fun.
Immersed in Christmas spirit that night, business areas and sightseeing spots in Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) were thronged with people to marvel at the decorated Modern Suzhou, for its original flavor and romance.
Long queues were everywhere in Harmony Times Plaza, from Chinese food restaurants to teahouses, from cafés to cake shops; and even the snack street on the Basement 1 of Jiuguang Department Store was overcrowded with citizens who chose to have a good dinner for the night.
Joyful music and festival-makers filled the Sky Screen Street of Harmony Times Square. FM94.8 music live was fully surrounded by audience while on the other side of Sky Screen, Happy Train put up a pleasure stage for children where singing competed in a cordial atmosphere with parents encouraging their kids aside...
Under the light yellow lights, people scattered at the Moon Harbor in threes and fours, enjoying their Christmas meal; or a hot drink and a free talk with an intimate or lover at the café was definitely a good choice for a romantic holiday there.
The activity "Art Vessel under Moonlight Sails on Christmas Night" launched by work staff of Commercial & Tourism Development added a surprise to romance seekers here: whoever consumes in the stores on the Harbor would have the chance to get a limited hand-made ceramic "Art Vessel under Moonlight".
Three new-year greeting films: If You Are The One II, Let The Bullets Fly and Just Call Me Nobody, were shown in the Cineplex of Suzhou Science and Cultural Arts Center nearby, and overnight show was promoted only for 99 yuan, attracting many a filmgoer.
