Top Things to Do in Wuxi City

Taihu Lake (Tai Lake), the third largest fresh water lake in China, is commonly believed to be the soul of the natural scenery and cultural relics in Wuxi. Around the lake you will find numerous resorts, gardens and scenic areas mirroring the beauty of the city. In the northwest bank of the Tai Lake, the Turtle Head Isle is the best place to appreciate the beauty of Tai Lake. It not only displays the fantastic far-stretching mists, waves and continuous green hill, but also houses an exquisite water garden with a delicate layout and decorations.

To the east of the Turtle Head Isle, the Li Garden features many rock gardens and formations, created with Tai Lake rocks; its thousand-pace promenade should also be seen, as it holds rare inscriptions. On the northern bank of the Tai Lake, the Plum Garden Scenic Area transports you into a charming world of plum blossoms and historical places.

In Three Kingdom City, Tang City and Shui Hu City to the south of Li Garden along the Tai Lake, the streets, temples and palaces portray China's ancient history. Another famous attraction at Tai Lake is the Lingshan Grand Buddha in the Mt. Lingshan Buddhist Scenic Area in the northern portion of Tai Lake, which is the tallest of its kind in the world.

In the past five thousand years, various peoples and cultures have taken claim of Wuxi, the fertile land. One can easily document these people by the marks they have left on the area - ancient pagodas, bridges and gardens, especially the Xihui Park at the foot of Xishan Mountain. Here you will find the Erquan Spring, famous for its pure water, and Jichang Garden, well-known for the peaceful antiquated landscape garden mirroring the mountain's charming natural beauty.
