    N once before, but have no old memories. By rail to Wuxi station station to the bus station by bus a 1-way, 2. Even if it is not working, as the Cherry Blossom Festival, every train is packed full of people. Standing for an hour to reach area after the gate. Tickets for 105 Yuan, scenic tour bus to and from gates and old tickets and Taihu xiandao fare back and forth. Recommendations into the Park to take a sightseeing bus, by boat to the Marina after the old door. Because there are many tours in the afternoon, at which time to stand in line for a long time. Taihu xiandao touzhu, a 12-minute journey away. Along the way can be seen from Afar in yuantouzhu, and scenery of the Taihu xiandao. Black-headed Gull with inertia on the stern, because along the way there are many tourists feed bread or cookies. You can watch these beautiful creatures at close range, the white feather, beautiful sliding position. Island shaped like a turtle, also known as Turtle Mountain. Endowed with a lot of Mythology. And culture of Buddhism and Taoism coexist. Shore is the island's Torii. Behind the white marble reliefs screen wall, surveys of the Jade Emperor Luan picture back. Pavilion linked five-hole bridge looks rather pretty. All Immortals on the island's highest point, three-tier five gardens, dedicated to the Taoist deities. Unfortunately not able to go up and view general effect. Sleep Bay is well worth seeing, cave feeling. Caves with large and small statues of various deities, one color is the biggest reclining Buddha, very elegant. Middle spring forming piles of waterfalls. In front of a huge statue of Confucius. Seen from the Island Lake, wide sense. March-April is the Cherry Blossom Festival, the best usually go, weekend holidays would burst. Cherry blossoms in late this year, to open only on the day of 70%. Although the Park is filled with cherry blossoms, cherry focuses on spring of Cherry Valley, Jay Park and the bridge. Yuantouzhu Cherry has planted over 30 years, Gu Cai Park optical branches of the trunk rough. Varieties of cherry blossoms is mainly somei Yoshino cherry, color white with powder. Some like the Fujian mountain cherry blossoms. Japanese style decorated Cherry Valley views. Japanese gate hangs strung Japanese lanterns, some hanging from the cherry blossom tree pink lanterns. Cherry pellets when thematic exhibitions and some rides. Cherry blossoms along the slopes of the Valley plant, Po was opened were in bloom flower of rape. But rape is a bit distracting and bright colors make pink cherry blossoms in the shade. Rows of cherry blossoms looked tremendous beauty, very busy perishable, it is no wonder than peach more like cherry blossoms. Unfortunately although roads flowers and onions, but parked cars damaged beauty, I really don't know what she thought of the scenic. Jay Park, there are many cherry trees. Best cherry point was cherry Lou, one golden, blue and red and white Japanese-style three-story loft. Climbing to the attic can be seen around the cherry blossom, photos can automatically block out the crowd. Around layers of cherry blossom has different feeling. Spring bridge near the water is a different kind of landscape. Bridge, next to the water's edge, pavilions in the cherry against the even more beautiful. Especially after 6 o'clock in the evening you can enjoy the night Sakura. Cherry Blossom tree, building on the neon continues to convert the multicolored fluorescence, the lake formed the smoke. Cherry Blossom is seem like a dream fantasy, I feel more beautiful than white. If only night, tickets priced at $90. Is the night bus, bus 6:30 all classes, holidays and shuttle. Of course in addition to the cherry blossoms, a yuantouzhu is also a very fun place, you can visit a day, with mountains and water pavilions and towers, the best view of Lake. Overall feeling very well, are people too much.

    Suggestive, but not very clean. Suggestive of night com lights that color the buildings and restaurants. But the water is not clean and there throw the waste.
