Nanchang Street is a famous ancient street in Wuxi which has now been renovated to be elegant, unique and integrated with various elements. Watching the fashion life on the “water lane” and the traditional street, you may be full of expectations for the slow but fashionable life in Wuxi.

The appearance of Nanchang Street shows the quietness and peace of the waterside towns in the regions south of the Yangtze River. However, walking into it, you will feel the enthusiasm and passion of modern life through the red wines and tasty coffee. The combination of traditional and modern living has become a characteristic of the street.

Nanchan Temple

It is one of the most famous temples in the regions south of the Yangtze River. The temple was built in the Southern Dynasties, and the Miaoguang Tower located inside the temple was built in the Northern Song Dynasty (AD420-589) and was named by Emperor Huizong of the Song Dynasty. Now, it is a cultural mall. People may visit it, buy some antiques and have some snacks in daytime. At night, the lightened tower is a landmark along the ancient canal.

Ticket: free

Opening time: With access all day

The ancient canal

You may boat on the canal and enjoy the sceneries at the side of Nanchang Street. At night, the slowly flowing water always reflects off the lights of the neon lamps beautifully.
