Sunday, July 28,

Departure: 09h00
Back: 16h00

We went towards the south bus station of Suzhou. We took a bus to Tongli. After about 1 hour trip we arrived at the small village.

Total cost :

– Bus: 8 Rmb (one way)

– Entrance fee to Tongli: 80 Rmb

Entrance fee Tongli has 80 Rmb (ie what I learned later that it is possible not to pay the entrance fee if you do not want to visit a garden or houses, but it’s difficult to let understand this to the guard at the entrance who only speaks Chinese).

Tongli is a town not far from Suzhou. It is located 18 km from Suzhou.

The characteristics of Tongli can be summarized in three points:

  1. A lot of water and bridges. There are over 40 bridges built in different dynasties.
  2. Many buildings of the Ming and Qing dynasties.
  3. Many famous people. Since the Song, especially in the times of the Ming and Qing dynasties, there are many famous historical figures who have returned to Tongli and have built many homes and gardens.
