Tongli Town was declared one of the thirteen national standard tour towns of the Taihu Lake region. it was listed for protection as the standard provincial town of cultural interest in Jiangsu Province.Be ready with RMB coins when going to this place because there's always a fee for every hall that you want to see aside from the entrance fee which is 80RMB($12).If you are leaving with a group of friends from shanghai,it's better to take a cab or a private car (for about 2 hours) but the view getting there is a must see too. As you enter the village, you would really feel that you are from a completely different era,even chinese tourists themselves are so overwhelmed upon visiting the place.You need to be there early coz the place closes at 5pm. We had lunch beside the lake while watching some tourists taking a small boat with a chinese guide rowing it like that in Venice. By the way, the lunch was great and cheap and the food serving is so huge.There are a lot of things to see. Tongli Town deserves its reputation of a 'museum of ancient architectures' as there are good many houses and temples dating from the Ming and Qing Dynasties that are still standing strong until this time. Leaving tongli, it would be better to take a bus (for 2rmb) and go to Suzhou.Better find friends in Suzhou so that accommodation won't be that difficult.
