Why we suggest this tour itinerary?

In this itinerary, tourists will visit one of the major cities in the Yangtze River Delta: Wuxi, which is only 140 km northwest away from Shanghai. Wuxi is absent from the main foreign tourist trails although it is very nice in all respects. It is not as famous as Suzhou and Hangzhou, for traditionally these 2 cities are political and economical center in this region. But Wuxi, with the Grand Canal through the downtown area, and Taihu Lake, the 2nd biggest fresh water lake in China, by the side of the city, is also an important commercial city and also possesses same fascinating picturesque scenery and splendid charming culture. It is an ideal place for the people who wane to escape from the busy metropolis and to be immersed in the atmosphere of the ancient scene of south China in Huishan Hill and ancient Huishan Town, the time-honored cultural streets with prominent classical gardens, former houses of famous people, mansion houses, ancestral temples, traditional shops, arched bridges, limpid canals, verdant hills. You will also have the opportunity to taste authentic local delicacies and snacks there.
