The quiet and comfortable evening; the next morning, I went to the old-fashioned snack shop in Tongli, Zhuhangduo to eat snacks (Taihu Lake Sanbai, Zhuangyuan Foot, Qianshi Cake, malt cakes, etc.). Before 8 o'clock, I bought online tickets to visit the main scenic spots in the town, went to the ancient theatre, listened to the evaluation bullets in Nanyuan Teahouse, and took a painting boat to see the "Luoxing Zhou" of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism outside the town, and then returned to Luoxing Zhou Ferry Pass by bus.

Like a Chinese Venice, this beautiful town enables one to slow down and enjoy a pace of life vastly different to the urban cities around. Cars are not allowed in the town, and note that the town tocket is a once off entry so unless you arrange with accomodation to have multiple entries don’t leave if you hope to return! Recommend wearing good walking shoes as the cobblestones are uneven and a day walking around is tiring. That said, it’s highly worth the walk. Children under 1.4m free. Our favourite site within the town was the Tuisi Garden, but all the little shops of knick knacks were fun to browse - albeit some full of kitsch plastic toys that distract the kids. The boat ride was fun and our boat driver sang us some songs for a small fee. The three bridges that couples in times past cross when they marry was wistful, and the museum of wedding artefacts a fascinating window into earlier times. Overall could have spent quite a few days more here resting and lingering.
People-oriented passers-by have nowhere to go. Never say where their hometown is. They can live as they please. There are flowers everywhere in the world. When I came to Tongli, I thought of being at ease and wanted to stay. In Tongli, you can see the small bridge flowing water in the south of the Yangtze River, the ancient town buildings with black tiles and white walls. After the rain, fresh and quiet, walking on the road of Qingshi Street, through narrow alleys, in which everything is so natural. Transportation - "Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai self-driving convenience; by bus - "Suzhou Railway Station (bus, 8 pieces per person) - - Tongli Bus Station (sightseeing bottle car, bus, taxi) - - Tongli Old Town scenic spot tickets - "package tickets, online ahead of time purchase 80/sheet, scenic spot spot spot spot purchase 100/sheet (tickets, unlimited number of access) scenic spot - "admission tickets include nine small scenic spots (retreat garden, Pearl tower, Luoxingzhou, farming paradise, Chongbentang, Jiayin Tang, Songshiwu).

It's very, very beautiful) to eat - "Farmer's food in Linhe Linjie Street. The snacks are mainly pastries (qinshi cake, crispy socks bottom, green ball, wine-making cake.)
First of all, I think the scenic spots inside Tongli are very worth seeing. Commercialization is only outside. The scenic spots are still very simple. First, we appreciate the Pearl Tower. The scenery of the Pearl Tower is beautiful and pleasant. My mother in her fifties lingers and forgets to return. Zandao is more worth seeing than Zhuozheng Garden. Then we see the Garden of Retreat, the courtyard is deep, and the sound of an old man's flute is melodious and attractive to us. Step by step, let a person's mood suddenly cheerful! ____________ Next each scenic spot has its own characteristics, you can come here to take ancient costume photos is very suitable, every place can be a perfect background! I live in Tongli Coffee Inn near Yongan Bridge. The landlady and her husband are very friendly. It's very cost-effective to bring the set tickets of ink-and-wash opera with us at half price of 140. The performance of ink-and-wash opera starts at 7:30 p.m. It's very wonderful. The three-dimensional sense of the stage is very strong. I strongly recommend that we must see it here. It's a good deal to have a direct taxi from Suzhou for the past 100 yuan! Eating is also everywhere, not very expensive, and no slaughter phenomenon has been found. Everyone is very enthusiastic! __________
One of the six major water townships in the south of the Yangtze River, I visited Wuzhen two years ago. By chance, I came to Wujiang for a tour. It is slightly larger than Wuzhen. There is no ancient Wuzhen. The ticket is 100 yuan. Several scenic spots can be visited. Because we live close to each other, we get up early and enter the scenic spot before 8 o'clock. No tickets are needed, but the individual scenic spots can not be accessed. If it is not the first time to visit the water town, it is suggested that ticket-free entry be made before 8 o'clock and after 4 o'clock. In winter, there are fewer tourists in cold weather and the town is quiet. It can be felt that the local residents are living in a peaceful and peaceful rhythm and a happy and contented mentality. Most stores don't open until 10 o'clock. It's very comfortable to bask in the sun in front of the ancient town stage and relax. After all, a good mood can't be bought with a peaceful mind.
Because Huajiantang chose Tongli, the small hidden in the lane, this 100-year-old courtyard is located in the deep alley of the ancient town, in order to be quiet and comfortable. When the car arrives at the telephone reception desk in Ancient Town, the staff will answer it. The enthusiastic boy will help to carry the luggage through the intricate alleys, check in and deliver to the room, and politely explain some things before leaving. The moment you enter the flower hall, you will be attracted by its style. After two days'stay, you can taste it slowly, and you can see its intentions in details. The staff of Huajiantang are very fond of dogs. During breakfast time, a large bowl of goat's milk will be offered to the dogs of the guests, which makes them feel warm at heart. Every time of the day in Huajiantang will feel different comforts. Wisteria leaves everything empty in the morning, lazy in many bread trees in the afternoon, drinking milk tea, eating a caramel pudding with a percentage of taste buds, reading a good book, and a quiet scenery of Jiangnan at the beginning of the evening. The only regret of this trip is that a Labrador raised by the original shop lost a lot. The intention is to bring my family Dudu to play for two more days, but also brought home-made duck biscuits. Unfortunately, many of them are no longer there, some of them are lost. The courtyard of Huajiantang is very suitable for pulling and pulling, and the dog looks happy these two days.
Must visit place to understand the ancient town models and the cultural dimension of China.
There is no noise in Zhouzhuang, no atmosphere in Wuzhen, more quiet, more Jasper in small homes, slowing down their pace and slowing down their sightseeing in the rainy autumn in the south of the Yangtze River. I was a hotel in the reserved scenic area. I didn't buy tickets at that time. The security uncle at the door looked at the reservation information and let me in directly. I was very happy. This is the case. In fact, it was later learned that if you want to visit Tongli for two days when you buy tickets, you must tell the conductor that they will ask your ID card to help you re-register it. I strongly recommend Tuishiyuan, you must go to it, and the performance is "Ink Tongli". Snacks, crispy socks, a very good sashimi cake, Xintang Street bought a lot of oh. It's not too expensive to eat near Tongli Sanqiao. It's good to suggest a small street in front of Xintang Street. Generally speaking, I like Tongli very much.
Very quaint and fun getaway spot for a day. We went on a weekend afternoon and evening and got a good feel for the place in that amount of time.
Not long ago, when I went to Wujiang on July 20, I went to the ancient town of Citongli again. This time I went to enjoy the night view. There were still some old houses on the old street of the old town. Some of them were rebuilt into inns and lodgings. The scenery under the sunset was more beautiful, the river was more delicious, and the night scenery was beautiful. There were also some scenic spots such as Ming and Qing Street, Tailai Bridge, Three Bridges, Tusi Garden and Pearl Tower, but late in summer. Tickets will be waived after 5:30 p.m., and all the charging attractions are closed. Compared with the occasional day, I prefer the old town flavor at night. The commercial flavor fades away. The bar is very busy. The singing is very moving. There are also wonderful performances in the same place with ink and wash. It feels very NICE.
