Tongli Water Town
Tongli is a picturesque and time-honored town embedded with a net of waterways. There, people can see 49 ancient bridges and 7 small isles segmented by the rivers and their branches. Strolling along the flagstone walkways around Tongli Town, you can find that almost all the folk dwellings are constructed at the water's edge with many boats berthing in the front. Here, the classic Retreat and Reflection Garden (Tuisi Garden) is a highlight with almost all the buildings inside standing by the jasper-like pond.
