Liyuan Garden is in southwest Wuxi, on the shore of Lihu Lake (formerly Wuli Lake). The garden occupies 5.4 hectares, almost half of which is water area. It is one of the most famous gardens for lake scenery in China

It is said that in the fifth century B.C., Fan Li, a senior official of the State of Yue, retired after having helped his master King Gou Jian defeat the State of Wu. He went boating on Wuli Lake with Xi Shi, a famous beauty, and changed the name of the lake to Lihu after his own given name.

Liyuan Garden, with its pavilions, corridors, and causeways at the lake side, is exquisitely designed and harmonious in color. The most interesting sight is the 1,000 metre long corridor that winds its way through the park. Along the way are inscriptions of ancient calligraphers. There is also a large white wall with numerous latticed openings from where you can view the park at different angles.

In the springtime, when the plum blossoms, the garden is often heavily crowded with local visitors.
