Suzhou Travel Guide
China Tours including trips to Tongli in Suzhou:
Tongli is a town in Wujiang county, on the outskirts of Suzhou. It is known for a system of canals reminiscent of Venice, Italy.
Tongli is 40 minutes away from Suzhou city. The city retains many of the features of an ancient Chinese town.
There are several museums in Tongli. This is more like a wax museum describing the culture of China in the olden days, about Marriage, the dynasties etc.
There is also a beautiful islet called "Luo Xing" islet to be traveled by ferry.
One can enjoy a lovely dinner sitting by the canal watching a boat pass by while the small restaurant cooks some nice Suzhou food. Tongli is peaceful, serene, calm and quiet.
In 2004, Tongli together with Luzhi and Zhouzhuang were listed in the tentative list for UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
