The last two days of Lunar New Year brings fortune gods blessing and lion/dragon dances. We loved it! The town is great to walk around, try different foods, see amazing pieces of history and really take in a different view of Chinese culture.

Unlike its more popular cousins Zhujiajiao and Zhouchuang, Tongli is quieter but just as nice. The picturesque water town is a little further than the rest but is easily accessible by MRT. We took about an hour to reach it from Suzhou. What really struck...More

This is a very pretty and quiet place. Travelling on a boat is fantastic.There are many small shops and guset house along the river. It would be a good idea to stay in the guest house of one night.
