Taihu Lake

taihu lakeCovering an area of over 2,250 square kilometers, Taihu Lake is one of the largest freshwater lakes in China. The lake connects Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, but it is said that best place to view is from the Xihui Park in the west of Wuxi. If you climb the seven-story Dragon Light Pagoda on the top of Huishan hill, you will be able to take in a panoramic view of Wuxi and Taihu Lake.

More than 40 islets dot the lake and houses, geese and duck farms, fish ponds and fruit orchards. The spectacular and tiered landscape makes one feel as if he were before a picturesque sea. Some popular sites along the lake are Turtle Head Isle and Three Hills Isles. The unique and marvelous scenery makes these places very famous. Nowadays many more attractions have been added by a number of elaborately designed architectures with classic Chinese traditional styles. With so many wonders and marvels, the place has become a fairyland.

Crossing the lake by pleasure-boat, you will see the wonders one by one, such as the Memorial Archway of the Taihu Fairy Islands, the White Marble Screen Wall of the Jade Emperor Tour the Heavens, the Hill of Flowers and Fruits, and Water Screened Cave, where you can also see monkeys jumping lively. You can roam around Tandy Xianfu (Heavenly Paradise and Immortal Place) there, and listen to the floating ancient music played on the traditional Chinese instruments. Probably most young people would like to tour the Temple of the God of Matchmaker, as well as the Pavilion of Affection Couples.
