I drove my car to Yang Cheng lake today with my friends. We have four cars today.
The Yang Chen Lake is the darker lake on the top to the characters Suzhou in the map below.
First Time on Highway
Thanks to the new transportaation regulation, I, as a intern driver, can drive onto the expressway now. In contrast, the old law requires driver to hold a driver’s license for at least one year before he/she can use the expressway.
From the Yan An Elevated Road, driving westward, and I arrived at the A9 entrance.
- Go alone the A9
- Turn right to A30 – the ring outside the outter ring.
- Turn left to A11 (the Shanghai to Nanjing highway)
- Turn right at the Kunshan Exit.

Factories in Kunshan. Kunshan is a rising star in China’s econimic zones. It is reported majority of Taiwan factories gather in Kunshan.
The Yang Cheng Lake. It is famous for the Big Crabs.
Below is the A11 from Nanjing to Shanghai direction. There are two lanes for single direction now. As you can see from the picture, contruction is unertaken to expand two more lanes.
Turning to the A11.
The other three cars in the same group to Yan Cheng Lake.
Turning to A9. It is good choice to name the Highways with numbers. It is much easier to remember A9 than the origional name – Huqingping Highway. The benifit is more obvious for foreigners who cannot read Chinese.
