    When you're in Wuxi, visits TAI HU lake. There are boats that take you around the shore. So beautiful and peaceful. Even in December, it was incredible.  more »

    It seems to Biwa Lake three times as large. I took a boat from the three kingdoms Castle. I think riding a further 20 minutes because the view does not change. Weather was good, Nice.
