Jiangsu Province is home to many ancient water towns in the Yangtze River Delta, famous for their waterways, bridges and authentic village homes. Tongli is one of the most beautiful examples, built on seven islets with 15 canals and nearly 50 bridges.

Established in the Song Dynasty, Tongli Water Village showcases over 1,000 years of history and cultural heritage. An example of the rich tradition of local craftsmanship can be seen at Jiayin Hall. Built in 1922, it is known for its collection of more than 100 well-preserved wood carvings of classical Chinese figurines. There are 49 bridges in Tongli, three of which have become the cultural symbols of the town. Named Taiping (peace), Jili (luck) and Changqing (celebration), locals walk over the three bridges to wish peace, fortune, happiness and health for their family and friends. There are also many traditional gardens in Tongli. Tuisi Garden, which was constructed between 1885 and 1887, is a wonderful example of a traditional Chinese garden. You will have the opportunity to stroll the pavilions, terraces, halls, rockeries and ponds to experience the harmony of the garden.

Ancient China Sexual Cultural Museum in Tongli explores more than 6,000 years of human sexuality in this most unique of museums. It features a large collection of historic and erotic artwork and artifacts relating to sexual culture. With more than 3,500 pieces, the collection ranges from stone and jade sculptures, antique sex toys, fertility idols, porcelain figures and paintings. The pieces are organized into various categories, including the evolution of sex, sexuality in religion, development of the marriage system, sexual oppression of women, erotica and sexual health. Parts of this world-famous collection had previously been shown to great acclaim in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Yokohama, Melbourne, Seoul, New York, Rotterdam, and Berlin.
