Taihu Lake

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Covering an area of over 2,250 meters, Taihu Lake is one of the biggest freshwater lakes in China. The lake connects Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces but it is said that the northern shore in Wuxi is the most splendid. More than 40 islets spot the lake and hosue geese and duck farms, fish ponds and fruit orchards. Taihu Lake is a popular escape for those battling the summer heat and there are boats or barges for a relaxing ride around the lake.
The best place to view the stunning Taihu Lake is on the Turtle Head Islet. Turtle Head Islet is an islet stretching into the lake, whose shape is actually like the head of a turtle protruding from the water. Taihu Lake and the surrounding splendor will bewitch your eyes when you climb onto Turtle Head. When the soft breezes blow, waves roll and the hills in the distance look like an overlapping landscape painting. The scene is actually captivating. Also Taihu Lake is a plentiful source of fish. This place will leave a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
