Tongli, or Tong-Li, is one of China’s prettiest water towns. Over 1000 years old it is chocolate box (or perhaps that should be Mooncake box?) pretty. During the weekends the place is packed, but during the week and especially at night you can have the place entirely to yourself. If you can’t get enough, we recommend the Moonlight Inn, which is an affordable and quaint hotel with an internal carp pond. Don’t expect anybody to speak English though, we spoke to the owner via WeChat, that worked very well!
