It's just an oily lake with a lot of flies flying about. There's nothing special about it so don't waste your time and just explore more of the Three Kingdoms City.

We stopped at the lake for lunch on our way to the Giant Buddha. It was a hazy day, but that improved the impression of the lake. The drive around it was pleasant despite the drivers. It was interesting to watch the people fishing and how they improvised to deal with different wall situations. At the restaurant we tried the... More

My colleagues and I arrived at the airport and had an afternoon before things started the next day. They knew where to go and we went directly from the Wuxi airport by taxi to Tai Hu (Big Lake). We left our luggage at the main information center. It's a major tourist attraction in the region but we were going there... More

We had blue sky the day we visited here (which was rare on our trip). The lake has a long wide path around it allowing for plenty of space to just stroll along and stretch your legs. Many Chinese families were out and about and the kites were flying

The largest lake in the region, unfortunately the fogs blocking my vies of the lake. Still manage to get to some scenic area, visit the lake after you visit the giant Budha

We were able to walk 30 minutes from the hotel to the peace and quiet of the lake (away from the tourist parts). It made such a change from the frenetic coach trip we were on. We just sat and enjoyed the view. The following day the coach trip visited another part of the lake which was much busier but... More

There is nothing much to see. The lake water is not as clear as what you can see in Hangzhou's thousand island. It;s boring.

Its a lake. Big and beautiful. Scenic. But a lake. One must be careful to go when there is no fog present otherwise visibility will be obstructed
