  • Traditional life in a touristy town

    I'm quite amazed that Tongli has held onto its character in the face of the the daily onslaught of mass tourism.

    Yes, everything is very spruced up, and the main streets/canals are chock full of tourist facilities. But you don't have to stray far to see that a lot of the people who live here are still going about their lives as if nothing had really changed.

    Also, the people in Tongli are still very friendly. The merchants are still quite honest.

    Not what you'd expect in a quiet town!

    The China Ancient Sex Museum

    Once located in the booming streets of Shanghai, it has been relocated due to a funding shortage and reopened in Tongli.

    So if you get fed up of walking around beautiful gardens, parks and canals, why not pop along to the museum for maybe a more
    pleasurable afternoon!

    It's all very funny that such a museum exixts full stop, but to put it in a small town like Tongli to me really makes no sense! And of course, this does mean that more and more people will be coming to this secret place making it more touristy by the day.
