Wuxi lies on the shore of the Lake Tai, to the northwest of Suzhou and around 130km west of Shanghai. Lake Tai, formed by a meteor impact 70 thousand years ago, contains around 90 islands, featuring a variety of plant and animal life. Surrounded by rolling hills and tea fields, it has been a popular tourist destination since the early 20th century.With its beautiful gardens, parks, temples and lakes, Wuxi more than earns its nickname of the ‘Pearl of Lake Tai’.
The best place to see the beauty of Lake Taiis from the gardens of the Yuantouzhu peninsula and its nearby islands. Yuan Tou Zhu literally means ‘the Head of the Dragon-Turtle’, inspired by the shape of the peninsula as it extends into the north-western part of the lake.

Based on the famous Chinese novel, Romance of Three Kingdoms, the Three Kingdoms Town is located in Dafu Village on the banks of Tai Lake. It is here that The Romance of the Three Kingdoms was filmed. Here, tourists can visit the military camp of Cao, castles on water, warships, and the King of Wu’s Palace and Ganlu (sweet dew) Temple.
