Wuxi Overview

Wuxi (Wúxī, 无锡) is best known as a convenient base for visitors to Tai Lake (Tai Hu), which is located a mere 5 km (3 mi) from the center of town. While there isn't much to see in the city itself, it lies in the heart of Jiangsu Province, sharing the region's long and interesting history. The Grand Canal runs straight through town and the local hills provide great views of the "Grand" Lake.

Wuxi's location, just upriver from Shanghai, places it directly in the region's industrial and agricultural heart. It thus lies in the middle of both scenic, fertile lands and an environmental travesty in the making. The waterways that bring life through Wuxi, and to the entire central east coast of China, have been exploited for over three thousand years and while the lakes, rivers and canals still attract tourists, their days of fueling a heartland with safe and clean water are certainly numbered as industry and its byproducts take over.
