Tongli Town Scenic Area is 27 kilometers from Suzhou City. With canals crisscrossing the town, it is known as the “The Oriental Venice” and “The Natural Photographic Studio.” The canals act as “streets” in Tongli and people mostly get around on boats.
The gardens and old buildings are the main attractions. With an elegant layout, Retreat and Reflection Garden (Tuisi Garden) is representative of gardens in South China and was declared a World Heritage by UNESCO in 2000.
