Wuxi

The Grand Canal runs across Wuxi, a city in south Jiangsu Procvince bordered by Lake Taihu to the south and Suzhou to the east, and 128 km from Shanghai. Wuxi is also a major industrial city south of the Yangtze, a "land of fish and rice", and a famous tourist city. The 2,000-square-km Lake Taihu, one of the five major freshwater lakes in China, spans both Jiangsu and Zhejiang Provinces. As its surface gradually encroaches upon downtown Wuxi, the lake becomes as photogenic as a "natural painting". All manner of pleasure boats bring visitors on tours of discovery to such sights as Triple Isles and Turtle-Head Islet, which is actually a peninsular with the best view of the lake.
