Tuisi Garden-Ancient Bedroom
Finally, we decided to visit Tongli after some searching on internet. First, we purchase our tickets one day in advance at Shanghai
stadium. We take our bus next morning at the same stadium, it takes about 2 hours ride, the bus stop at a parking lot, from there, we bought tickets for the battery car to take us to Tongli Ancient Town entrance. We have only one day to visit the village, we thought that is quite enough, but never expect so much more to see, from we enter until out of the village to catch the 4pm bus, we only manage to see a few places only. It would be nice if we could spend the night there and explore the place again next morning, but due to time constraint, we choose to visit a few. The restaurant food was nice, we just hop-in to one restaurant which I forgotten the name when we got hungry. I know there is quite a few famous water village in Jiangsu province, so far, I enjoy the peaceful scenery and tranquility in Tongli. We went there on a weekday, avoid weekend as it will be packed with tourists.
