Wuxi Tour

Wuxi location

Wuxi, in Jiangsu Province, is an industrial and resort city on the north bank of Lake Tai (Tai Hu), one of China's five largest lakes. Important as a transportation junction, Wuxi is situated astride the Grand Canal linking Beijing with Hangzhou and along the Nanjing-Shanghai railway line, 145 km. (87 mi.) west of Shanghai. The original name of the city, Youxi ("with tin"), referred to local tin mines first worked in the Zhou Dynasty (c. 1066-221 BC). When the tin was depleted during the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD), the name was changed to Wuxi ("without tin").

Wuxi's long history dates back some 3,000 years to the Shang and Zhou periods, when scattered settlements existed in the area. The city was formally founded during the Han Dynasty, as the capital of a feudal state in the region. Yet few details appear in later dynastic histories and Wuxi remained for the most part a small country town. This image did not begin to change until the 1930s, when Wuxi began rapidly to expand its industry, the keystone of which were 45 silk filatures. The town also gained some importance as a transport center, trans-shipping manufactured goods and silks by water to Shanghai. Its greatest period of expansion, however, occurred after 1949.
