Wuxi is situated at the south of Jiangsu province, at the heart of Yangtze Delta, neighbouring east with Suzhou. It is a commercial and industrial town for Jiangnan.

At the south of Wuxi is the famous & scenic Taihu Lake, ancient water canals cut accross the the town.

Some informative websites are stated below:-

Ning Shan Great Buddha

An imposing giant standing buddha made from bronze. It is situated at Mashan hilly area, at the mid-slope of Ning Shan Hill.

Ning Shan is not only a tourist attraction but also a meeting place for buddhist devotees to wish for good luck and health.

Other than Ning Shan Great Buddha, there are many must-sees like "The First Palm in the World", Daxiong Temple & the spectacular Nine Dragons Fountain. They will be introduced in detail under my travel tips.

Nine Dragons Fountain

This superb architecture was added not long ago to Ning Shan Great Buddha tourist attraction. Huge investment has been pumped in to build this advanced yet Fengshui-like fountain.

The fountain is built completely with lighting and music to give tourists a spectacular musical fountain show at scheduled intervals.
