Tongli Water Town Tongli Water Town

Tongli Water Town

Tongli is a storybook town situated a short distance from Suzhou, which itself is about an hour drive outside Shanghai. The town of Tongli is over 1000 years old, retains the township features of ancient Wu, and has only recently opened to tourist visits. There are to be found gracefully curving stone bridges, secluded gardens, temples and houses that from their very foundations are steeped in the traditional designs and aesthetic of so many centuries ago. 15 small river lanes crisscross the town, and 49 bridges span these waterways, in a delightful variety of masonry styles. Among all these bridges, the most famous would certainly be these three: Taiping (Peace), Jili (Luck) and Changqing (Celebration). They have long been important landmarks in this place and are regarded by the locals as sacred structures. Whenever there is an important occasion, such as a wedding, the people in Tongli like to observe a tradition of traversing these three bridges, to draw great peace, fortune and happiness into their lives. The town of Tongli is full of well-preserved buildings that have stood along the waterways since the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The traditional gardens, such as the Tuisi, are an extraordinary sight and experience.
