Suzhou in East China's Jiangsu province, which is famous for its waterways, recently launched a social media campaign to draw more visitors from North America and Europe.

The Suzhou Tourism Bureau will run the online campaign through May, giving potential visitors information about the city's tourism resources, delicious foods and traditional crafts on, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. People from the United States and Canada can also participate in interactive activities on the bureau's official site.

A "lucky" winner will also get a six-day vacation package for two people.

Another lottery will be held online for European travelers in April.

For international travelers, flying to nearby Shanghai is convenient. One can take the high-speed train to Suzhou from other Chinese cities, too. As a popular tourist destination, the city has been expanding its infrastructure, adding four new hotels in the past few months.
