This is a huge lake with plenty of park/ forest surrounding it. There are long walkways around the lake that are great for joggers and bikers or just for a nice stroll. There are plenty of canals connecting to it as well that remind me of Venice. You can also fish by the shore practically anywhere. There are only certain... More

is a big lake but the scenary is not so exciting. We drive around the lake and the air today is not very good. We did not walk as it is also quite cold today.

This is the lake that all of the interesting rock formations in the local Chinese gardens come from. However, while pleasant, it is not really that special to look at.

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
