Wuxi Introduction

Wu xi is located between north latitude31°07' – 32°00', east longitude 119°31' – 120°36'; it is situated in the middle of the Yangtze Delta, Taihu Plain southeast of Jiangsu province; the Yangtze River to the north and Taihu Lake south;183 kilometers away from Nanjing, 128 kilomenters from Shanghai.
Wuxi was already settled in the Zhou period (11th-3rd c. BC), as the capital of the Wu kingdom, when it was known as Youxi, “a place having tin.” The current name, meaning “without tin” came into use by the early Han dynasty (2nd-1st c. BC), suggesting the tin deposits used in bronze metallurgy were already played out by that time.
The Climatic Features of Wuxi are  subtropical monsoon maritime climate; mild and humid with 4 distinct seasons; long frost-free period of 230 days, enough sunshine of 2000 hours annually.
Wuxi is o­ne of the less well-known cities in China, which seems strange to those who live here. Interestingly, o­nly three or four years ago expatriates were rarely seen in the city, and not many cars were privately owned. Now Wuxi is listed as o­ne of the 15 economic central cities in China as well as o­ne of the ten leading tourist cities.
The first thing visitors will notice when approaching Wuxi, especially when arriving by train or bus from the west, is the lush vegetation and the abundance of water in the many rivers, lakes and canals. Wuxi is located in the rich, fertile, low-lying area of the Yangtze River delta, often referred to as the “land of fish and rice”.
The main tourist attraction is Tai Hu (Lake Tai), o­ne of China’s four main freshwater lakes. There are a number of sites to visit and activities to enjoy in and around the lake, including islands and boat rides, parks and gardens, and even a movie set. For tourists who choose to make the lake the centre of their visit, there are plenty of hotels and resorts near the lake.
Near Tai Hu visitors can also enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Plum Garden, and closer to the city, Li Yuan (Li Garden) o­n the shores of the smaller Li Hu (Li Lake). At 88 metres in height the bronze Ling Shan Buddha at Ma Shan (Ma Hill) is another o­ne of Wuxi's most spectacular sites.
Very close to the city centre is the hilly area of Xihui Park. The park contains many attractions including a small zoo, a cable ride, and a pottery museum. Xihui Park is located just across the Grand Canal, the largest and busiest canal that crisscrosses the city.
