  • Taihu Lake is 3.5 times of Lake Biwa and ask, first of all I was surprised! History of Chinese feel its grandeur. In Riverside Park (green belt) length is 50 km. China's future urban planning and was felt in the skin. Seeing is believing and look with this thing. The contrast between the modern bridge was like postcards.

  • Visited the lake on 4th December. Beautiful place to visit. Since it was very cold during this period we could not enjoy. There is a fish market. Many take home fresh water fish fresh to home. 
  • 有車自駕是最好的,太湖的風景不錯。廣闊的湖面,經常看到很多人去釣魚,和他們攀談一下也很有意思。夏天去太湖邊不熱挺舒服的。
