    The first time I went to visit Lingshan Buddhist scenic spot was in 2011. I was amazed by the beauty and the majesty of this place. This is the reason why I promised myself I would have come back here again one day. I kept my word and put this scenic spot on top of my must-see things in Wuxi. Ten years ago for the first time in my life I could admire such an impressive statue just like the one of Amida Buddha that is 88 meters in height. From then on I would have had the chances to visit other huge modern statues but in my opinion this one is the most breath-taking. Now that my second visit has come to its end, it's time to give readers some useful info. Firstly how to get there...well it's understood it depends on where your hotel is located. However there is a bus leaving from the railway station that brings you directly to Lingshan. The bus number to take is...88. Getting to destination from the railway station took me...88 minutes (I am not kidding...such a coincidence indeed). At that point I thought the entrance ticket was...88 RMB but it wasn't. Business is business. The price was 210 RMB...kind of expensive but well spent money. Other useful information is the amazing show performed at 02:00 PM inside the Vatican. I don't want to anticipate anything...just go and enjoy it. Inside one of the halls of the Vatican it is also possible to have a buffet lunch. There is plenty of choice but only veggies and no meat at all. The price is 60 RMB. Ten years ago it was 20. After all death and inflation are the only two certainties we have in life. If you are in Wuxi or even in nearby cities such as Suzhou and Kunshan don't miss this awesome place.

    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.

    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.

    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

    Hard to believe that this place was built in 2 years and cost a mere 1.3 billion dollars
    The palace is beautiful. They give u covers for your shoes so as to not mark or dirty the floors
    The light show inside is breathtaking
    And the ceilings are really a site to see
    Take your time and see it all
    There are literally thousands of orchid potted plants that are changed up every 5-7 days to keep them fresh, that r religious offerings for loved ones

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    This is a modern Buddhist resort at Lingshan scenic spot in Wuxi. Can treat this as a meditation getaway or a retreat for inner peace of mind, sound so relaxing. Every night time there is a laser show for everyone to enjoy and the whole place is lighted up.

    Nice to be able to get off bus and walk around. Distances are large in China. This provided a very welcome exercise break that was beautiful.

    This is one of several museums in the delightful little town of Wuxi, home to about 600,000 inhabitants. Not at all crowded and a refreshing visit to experience this important part of the local history.

    You start off looking at the Giant Buddha. Several meters away you are drawn to Ling Mountain and the water show that reveals the lotus flower opening up to Baby Buddha. This is not a religious experience but one where your mind tries to grasp the word WOW from your what you see in front of you.

    A nice place to enjoy in Wuxi. We came to Wuxi for a long weekend gateway - to relax and enjoy some tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai. JiChang Garden meets that requirement :-) it is truly a place to sit and relax, enjoy nature and beautiful scenery
