Tongli is located about 18km (11 miles) south-east of Suzhou in the east of China. It was originally named Fushi (rich land) before being renamed Tongli meaning copper village during the Tang dynasty (618-907 A.D.). The town is a delightful water town with a wonderful system of small canals and bridges which flow past traditional Chinese houses. As well as this, the old town features a few lovely gardens which are in the same mould as the ones you find in Suzhou. Getting here is very simple from Suzhou and only takes 45 minutes by bus and makes for a great day out from the big city.
