Boasting monikers such as “Land of Fish and Rice” and “Little Shanghai”, Wuxi is often hailed as one of the birthplaces of modern Chinese industry and commerce. Nestled on the northern shore of Tai Lake, China’s third-largest body of fresh water, Wuxi is blessed with a climate that remains pleasant and moist all year-round. With its proximity to Yangtze River and system of dense canals and waterways, it’s no surprise that Wuxi has a history of being a major transport route as well as one of the most prosperous cities in ancient China.
Wuxi’s history can be traced to as far back to the 11th century BC when it was still part of the state of Wu. During the Ming Dynasty, Wuxi became a cultural hub and center for political discussions, much like Athens in Greece. Although its importance as a national cultural center has declined since the late 1940s, Wuxi still remains a vital piece of ancient history that should be preserved for future generations.
