Suzhou turns water conservancy projects into tourist attractions

Jan 31, 2019|By

In recent years, Suzhou has taken advantage of its water conservancy projects to develop them into tourist attractions, which included six national-level scenic spots, five at the provincial level and four shortlisted in the Jiangsu Beautiful Water Landmarks.

The city has made use of Xujiang River, Qiputang river channel and Xitang River as the central water network to build a scenic spot featuring various tourism resources such as river, lake, water conservancy facilities, parks and nearby countryside sites.

The Xukou Water Conservancy Culture and Science Exhibition Area relies on the existing infrastructure to share the related culture and scientific knowledge with the public.

The Qiputang River and Lake Eco-tourism Zone combines the environmental advantages of the Yangcheng Lake to create an ecological experience corridor along the water channel and lakes.

The Xitang River Recreation Zone utilizes the waterfront to develop a leisure area that offers recreation, sports and fitness functions.
