Togli has nothing to do with Venice for the exception that it develops a part on water. Nevertheless the little town is worth half a day trip. It’s around 45 minutes from Suzhou by car. When you arrive you cross a modern bridge and you...More

We spent an amazing day in Tongli. Went there on a rainy day so it was not crowded. Really enjoyed a boat tour on canals and delicious local food. It is accessible by metro. You need to take tickets to enter the old town area....More

We spent an amazing memorable day in rural water towns: picturesque views and experiences full of unusual moments for western travellers. Melody gave this trip a nice personal touch. Highly recommend!

After living in China for such a long time, I FINALLY made it to Tongli. Many of my Chinese friends insisted that I go. You will soon learn that many of these "historic" cities are all the same.

The old part of the town has admission fee till evening, but it's free after 5 or 5:30pm. I think it should be better to go at evening as those restaurants at the sides of water channel will light up lanterns that adds some beauty....More

Easily accessible from Suzhou via the metro system although it will take well over 2 hours from centre of town. Once you arrive there is a tour desk but you may also take a taxi or Didi from the terminal subway station. We traveled there...More

Hi, it depends how much you want to see in Suzhou, that will decide how long you would stay. I would stay a night or 2 as visiting the water town would take up about 5-6 hours and some of the tourist places will close by... More

Take line 4 all the way to Tongli, exit 2, and you can pay to get a bus into the ancient town. The 90 RMB bus fare covers the town's entry fee (normally 100 RMB, I believe) and gets you into several of the museums in the... More
