One of the many water towns near Suzhou. We took a bus from Suzhou North Train station. About 1.5 hour. Day trip (2-3 hours). Town is small. Commercialized but still quiet (we visited in Dec) enough to walk around and enjoy. White buildings, black roofs,...More

Came here for a few hours. Walked through a garden and took a cruise through the town. Plenty of places that offer pictures in traditional Chinese clothing along the canals. Fun visit.

Nothing spectacular, gardens are average, narrow water canals. Didn't take a boat ride. Food options are also not great

Tongli was unquestionably one of the unexpected highlights of our recent trip to China. We'd read about it in a guide, but were still taken by surprise at the timeless charm of this ancient hamlet nestled between bridges and cuddled along canals. We came on...More

Unlike many Chinese water towns this is neither fabricated nor merely just one big open air museum. It is, however, a huge tourist destination, both for the growing Chinese middle classes and the occasional foreigner. A 40 min uber ride from central Suzhou, or about...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
