    The biggest Buddha in China! -- And that's saying something! There are great big Buddhas in Suzhou, not far away, and Hangzhou, not too far away, The Lingshan Grand Buddha is the biggest. It's bronze. One toe of this sculpture is bigger than you. It's amazing and impressive. It's about an hour and a half outside of Wuxi City. You should see some of Wuxi while you're in the territory. The great big Buddha is just one of the famous attractions. The Old City, with its enormous gardens, is a must-see, as well.

    The ancient town is located in the city of Wuxi, with a lot of tea houses and beautiful cultural landmarks and old buildings. Recommended to visit with kids.

    Great place for a leisurely walk. We enjoyed viewing the lake, gardens, many types of trees and flowers, and I believe what are spring’s sour red cherries. The park is well-maintained and clean.

    This theme park moonlighting as a movie studio is similar to what they use warner brothers studios as a theme park as well as shooting movies or as this belongs to CCTV for tv shows. It really feels like being in a ming dynasty palace and they even have a working ancient port. They run cruises about replica junks used for filming and you can pay extra for a speedboat ride along the huge and shallow taihu lake. Because its a working studio they have costumes for you to try on and take home a picture as a souvenir. Tip try renting the 4 person push bike or 3 person electric scooters that looks uncanny resemblence to a disablity scooter back home.

    The temple if one of the many sites to explore while visiting Wuxi - nice to both see its architecture and art but also to do some people watching. Outside of the temple there are some small market stalls selling all sort of fruit and nicknacks

    This palatial attraction is just one part of temple compound with a lot of great big attractions, including the biggest standing Buddha in the world, a Buddha hand, a water show featuring a Buddha being born in a gigantic lotus, and lots more. It's about an hour from Wuxi City, or a bit longer, 88 minutes, they say, on a new and beautiful highway that winds through. forest beside a huge lake.

    We didn't do much on this lake, but we stopped by and took a looksee. We got there at sunset and caught a gorgeous blood-red sunset. A beautiful vista - definitely recommended

    Was lucky to see this place during the blooming of the cherry blossoms and it was rather amazing. The sheer volume of blooms is pretty impressive. Being a Sunday it was very crowded unfortunately.

    Really pretty views with the red lanterns over the canal. Well worth a visit. One side of the bridge is much more touristy and lit up. Be sure to cross the bridge to the older side which is a quaint village that also has cute shops and small restaurants. Have visited a lot of such pedestrian streets in China and this one is worth it due to the quaint side. Come at dusk so you can see the night view and the lit up streets.

    A group tour to China was advertised in the Weekend papers at a NOT TO BE MISSED PRICE - including flights, 10 days of touring, 5* hotels, most meals, an English speaking guide. It didn't take a lot of discussion, and 3 of us decided to take it on.
    Cities to be visited included Beijing, Wuxi, Suzhou and Shanghai.
    History invades the air, when you think of the Great Wall - how long it took to build - how many people involved - the mind spins. We toured Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City. the Summer Palace, Beijing Zoo and the Giant Pandas, A Jade factory, Cloisonne" Factory, and visited a Hutong - in one of the cities ancient alleyways, and took part in a rickshaw race -.
    We dined on Pekiing Duck, and other delicacies -
    We then boarded a high speed train 0 over 300 k's PH to Wuxi - where we had a cruise on the Grand Canal, visited a wonderful museum with innovative displays, and then a pearl factory and display - beautiful items on sale,
    Then back on the bus to Suzhou - elegant buildings, canals, and gardens. The Lingering Garden was amazing.
    Next day we went to a Silk factory - exquisite items to view and maybe purchase -
    We then took boat ride on West Lake - amazed by the Pagodas overlooking the lake and the number of large boats - such as the gilded dragon boat.
    Next was a Tea plantation for information and a tasting.
    Then we arrived in our last city - Shanghai - bustling sea and river port, old architecture on the Bund and modern tall buildings, towers and shopping. We went to the top of Jin Mao Tower and observation deck - view obscured by smog - and that night a wonderful river cruise catching the night lights and illuminated buildings and boats,
    It was a very busy trip - we walked a lot, saw a lot, were amazed by everything - the history, the parks and gardens, modern apartment blocks - ancient buildings - roses growing along the middle of the freeways, hanging gardens from overhead passes - and trees trimmed to the inch - wonderful.
    NO GRAFFITI anywhere.
    If you see the ad 0 take uup the offer - it is a holiday to remember.

    If you enjoy a pleasant evening stroll, people watching, and LOTS of options for good, affordable food and drink, this should be part of your visit to Wuxi. Be sure to take the beautiful and relaxing canal cruise, which allows you to see the area from a different perspective, and makes a stop at an interesting little museum. The cruise is especially enjoyable during the annual Lantern Festival. Wuxi is a bit like Venice, New Orleans and San Antonio all rolled in to one (although it's been around longer than any of those cities)! Enjoy!

    A beautiful Chinese garden with a lot of history. Strolling along by yourself is good enough if your main interest is in scenery and you would not be disappointed. But, I would recommend you hire a local guide who can brief you along the way. You will in addition get to appreciate the culture and the stories behind.
