Located around 128 kilometers from Shanghai and by the side of Taihu Lake, Wuxi is a famous historic and cultural city with a history of over 3000 years, where the Wu Culture and the South Yangtze River Culture were cultivated. As early as 3000 years ago (end of 11th century BC), Taibo, the eldest son of the Emperor Zhouwu in the northern China, came here from Shaanxi together with his younger brother Zhongyong and set up the State of Gouwu here. Taibo pormoted the combination of the central and southern Chinese culture and created the Wu Culture. In 202 BC, Wuxi County was formally established. The name of Wuxi, literarily meaning "no tin" , was given due to the extinguishing resource of tin of the Tin Hill (Mt. Xi Shan). It is also hailed as "the pearl on the Taihu Lake".  Wuxi takes over the most beautiful corner of the Taihu Lake and on the shore of the Lake scatter famous parks such as Turtle-head Peninsula Park. In Wuxi, tourists can stroll on the ancient Nanchang Street and its environs which is right by the side of ancient Great Canal - the oldest and longest Canal in the world, enjoy the picturesque scenery and explore the fascinating features of the south Yangtze River water town.
