Yuantouzhu Island []

Yuantouzhu Island, or "Turtle Head Isle," is a popular tourist resort on Taihu Lake, and is China's second largest fresh water lake, and is located in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province. It got its name because its shape resembles a turtle's head.

The Yuantouzhu Park, at the most beautiful corner of Taihu Lake, is endowed by nature, combining both green hills and crystal-clear water. It is famous for its tourism, especially during the spring season from March to April when hundreds of cherry blossom trees start to bloom.

Tourist ferries leave from Yuantouzhu to the Sanshan Islands and come back at scheduled times every day, and are open to all visitors. There are also at least eight ancient fishing sailboats on the lake.

Admission: 105 yuan (US$16.61)/person
