The ancient city of Wuxi is a beautiful and serene town, surrounded by gardens and cultural sights full of history. The architecture is colorful and geometric, with intricate designs. I felt like I stepped back in time to an ancient Chinese dynasty. In fact, we stumbled upon a film set of a movie set hundreds of years ago. They were filming a fight scene like straight out of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Pretty sweet. I highly recommend this day trip from Shanghai. The Suzhou/Wuxi area gardens are magnificent, and we had a great time on a mystical boat ride through the fog on Lake Taihu. You can view more photos of Wuxi in my Flickr album HERE.
