#1 of 15 in Parks in Wuxi
Spread across 2,250 sq km (870 sq mi) in the Yangtse Delta near Wuxi, Tai Hu Lake is the third largest freshwater lake in China. With its 48 islets, the area provides a perfect outing spot for families. Take a boardwalk across the rippling surface to climb a tall observation wheel, or paddle out onto the water on mouse-shaped boats. Watch boats drift across the lake, which has an average depth of 2 m (6.6 ft), or take a flat-bottom boat tour to reach the best spot to observe the city skyline, Turtle Head Island. Enjoy flowers and trees by the lake shore, or visit the historic Grand Canal of the Sui Dynasty.
