Now here we have a tourist attraction that is a little unusual. While it's a notable change from temples, rock-cut stairs, and gardens, it remains so very Chinese. You will probably witness a movie being made, take a ride on a boat, horse, or even a camel, and definitely learn something about China’s incomparable history and culture.
Coming from Overseas Through Shanghai
Although there are limited flights into Wuxi airport from a few places outside of China, most travelers reach Wuxi via Pudong Airport, Shanghai.
There are several large suburban style shopping centres around the perimeter of the city centre, and they are all very similar to each other. Usually the ground floor has clothes and household goods. The escalators, which usually take you up to the supermarket, often seem as if they are hidden in the back corner.
Address:B Zone Wenyuan Fang, Chongning Lu (next to the Rich club)
Nanchan Temple is a very noticeable building complex located on the ring road, Jiefang Lu ( 解放南路), at the south end of the main north-south road in the city, Zhongshan Lu (中山路). At night the area is even more attractive with vibrant light displays and decorations.
Address:No. 88 Renmin Lu
Address:Southern end of Zhong Shan Lu
Price:free to enter but plenty to buy
The Nanchan Temple Markets are a lovely place to visit to both enjoy the cultural atmosphere as well as to do some shopping for souvenirs or fresh produce. There are often community events, such as fireworks, held here to celebrate holidays throughout the Chinese calendar.
