Old City, Tongli

May 18, 2007


If you don’t have a sensitive nose and will not take a close look at the almost stagnant water this old city of more than 100 years is a nice place to spend few hours between meals.

The sun was pretty hot today but it was cool and comfortable walking along the canals, sidewalks and visiting grand houses that were once residence of local celebrities.     These are really big houses and I wonder in those days how frustrated that would be looking for family members in such a big area.

The place is centrally managed and entrance fee is RMB80.
