Wuxi is one of the last frontiers of Eastern China that has been relatively untouched by Western tourism. One can get a feel for both the city’s traditional culture and the modern growth. It is one of the rising stars of China’s modern industry and commerce.
Wuxi carries all the trademarks of a growing Eastern Chinese city but is set apart by its location on the magnificent Taihu (Lake Tai). Here one can escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the outside life and relative peace that this area contains.
People come to China for many reasons and Wuxi caters to them all. As it has been relatively untouched by the Western world this is a great place to learn Chinese, simply by immersion. For the travelers, Wuxi holds many cultural sites and is short day-trip distance to many temples, canal towns, historical places of interest and scenic areas.
