This morning, you will take a high speed train from Shanghai to Wuxi by yourself to begin your trip. We will book the train tickets and send you the booking record in advance. You only need to show your passport to board the train. Upon arrival in Wuxi, your local guide and driver will meet you at the railway station. Take our non-smoking air-conditioned vehicle to begin your Wuxi tour from Shanghai. 

First you will head to visit the Taihu Lake. Called Zhenze in ancient times, it is the third largest freshwater lake in China. You will also stop over at Yuantouzhu Park and Li Garden.

It is a must for most travelers to visit Taihu Lake while in Wuxi and the essence of Taihu Lake lies in the Turtle Head Isle. The islet was so named because the similar appearance to a turtle with its head bent back. Here you can admire religious buildings on the Taihu Fairy Islands, as well as climb to the top of the Luding Hill to overlook the whole scenic area. If you come in March or April, an eyeful of pink cherry blossoms will refresh you. 

Yuantouzhu Park is one of the world's top three places to enjoy cherry blossom. The best period to visit this scenic spot is in spring when the cherry trees blossom. The area of the Cherry Valley inside the park is very large, where you can fully enjoy the breathtaking view. Occasionally you could see some antique wooden boats sitting on the calm Taihu Lake, which may make you feel like traveling back in time. 

Continue our visit to Liyuan Garden. Built in 1927, the Garden is a representative of Wuxi. It is quiet and peaceful on the banks of Lihu Lake. Wander around the Garden, you will see many local people playing Tai Chi which brings tranquility to the visit. 

The last stop will be Huishan Old Town. The old town is well preserved and offering beautiful architectures and gardens to appreciate. With 118 ancestral temples from Tang Dynasty, it is also famous for the China family temple culture. Huishan Old Town is considered as an open-air museum for its long history and profound culture. Ancient local people depicted art by using clay, hence the well-known Huishan clay figurine, an excellent traditional national craft listed as a national intangible cultural heritage. You will find many kinds of brightly colored clay figurines in the old town. 

After the trip is completed, your guide and driver will take you to the railway station for a train back to Shanghai. Wish you a pleasant trip!

Special tourism buses to Yangcheng Lake at the Shanghai Tourist Distributing Center in November.
I will be staying in East Nanjing Road and would like to go to the lake.
Is this special bus available in November 2016, and if yes can I take it at the centre nearest to the place where I will be staying?
Which tourist station distributing centre is the nearest?
Thank you.

From Shanghai, you can take high-speed train to Kunshan first, then change bus no. 107 to the lake. I've also heard that there is special bus bound for Yangcheng Lake directly every November, but the schedule is not available at the moment.
