As one of the well-preserved waterside towns in the Yangtze River Delta, Tongli is famous for its rivers, bridges and ancient architectures of the Ming (1368-1644) and the Qing (1644-1911) dynasties. Old Temples, pavilions, towers and gardens can be seen everywhere in Tongli. Almost all of the buildings in the town are along the waterfront. The most well-known private garden in Tongli is the Tuisiyuan, this Chinese classic style garden was built from 1885 to 1887, it was listed as a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO in 2001. Half of the garden is covered by water. All the buildings in the garden are situated close to the surface of the water.
