Suzhou and Tongli

Suzhou and Tongli

I will be arriving in Suzhou between 1600 to 1800 on a Sunday evening from Shanghai Pudong. Intending to rent a private car and driver.

Wondering if it would make sense to do Master of the Net, Lingering Garden, Humble Administrator, Panmen Pingjiang Road and Tongli in two days. Or are these places too similar and I should drop some

Is it possible to do the following:

Sun evening: Master of the Net evening (Is there a fixed timing to enter the garden for the show to start or I can go in at any time? Any need to make advance booking? )

Mon: Lingering Garden + Ping Jiang Road + Humble Administrator + Panmen (free entry from Pan Pacific where I am staying) Are there any other attractions I should squeeze in especially for the evenings when the major attractions are closed

Tues: Tongli and then drive to Hangzhou for the evening and next part of our trip. Or shall I move part of the Mon itinerary for Suzhou here?

Many thanks in advance for your help

I am looking at a similar itenerary and am confused on what to squeeze in a day. I have also posted another question for a day trip to Suzhou. I have set aside 2 days for hangzhou and am skipping Tongli. Alternatively, i might do only 1 day in hangzhou and instead to zhujiajiao.

I don't know if you have already traveled, but to anyone seeing this, I would recommend one day for Suzhou including a couple of hours at Tongli and one day at Hangzhou to walk around West Lake. Traveling from Suzhou to hangzhou takes less than two hours by train. The train route stops at Shanghai's HongQiao Station.
