Why take this tour?

Established in the Song Dynasty, Tongli Water Village showcases over 1,000 years of history and cultural heritage. An example of the rich tradition of local craftsmanship can be seen at Jiayin Hall. Built in 1922, it is known for its collection of more than 100 well-preserved wood carvings of classical Chinese figurines. There are 49 bridges in Tongli, three of which have become the cultural symbols of the town. Named Taiping (peace), Jili (luck) and Changqing (celebration), locals walk over the three bridges to wish peace, fortune, happiness and health for their family and friends. There are also many traditional gardens in Tongli. Tuisi Garden, which was constructed between 1885 and 1887, is a wonderful example of a traditional Chinese garden. You will have the opportunity to stroll the pavilions, terraces, halls, rockeries and ponds to experience the harmony of the garden. You may also have the opportunity to vist the traditional silk factory after the tour.
