home > Wuxi City

Nestled on the northern shore of Tai Lake, China's third-largest body of fresh water, Wuxi lies on the southern border of Jiangsu Province, about 128 kilometers (79.5 miles) northwest of Shanghai. Covering an area of 4,785 square kilometers (1847.5 square miles), it borders Suzhou to the east, Zhejiang Province to the south and Changzhou to the west. There are six districts and two county-level cities (Jiangyin and Yixing) under its prefecture with a total population of 4.578 million. Wuxi is a city richly endowed by nature. Owing to its pleasantly warm and moist climate, it boasts a reputation of the 'Land of Fish and Rice'. Relying on the near-by Yangtze River and ancient Grand Canal, it had been a port city with the busiest rice and cloth market in China before 19th century. In modern times, with its rapidly developing industry, Wuxi became one of China's top 50 cities with broad strength and is thus called the 'Little Shanghai' for its prosperous economy. Wuxi, a city embraced by clear water and green hills, also has a nicely-developed urban area. The tidy, clean cityscape and convenient public transportation combine well with its beautiful landscape.
