Wuxi, the pearl of Taihu Lake, has met Hong Kong, the Pearl of the Orient. Jointly hosted by Hong Kong and Jiangsu province, the 2018 Jiangsu Cultural Carnival opened on April 20, and concluded on April 22.

The event provided an opportunity for Wuxi to showcase its tasteful dishes, characteristic souvenirs and amazing scenery to Hong Kong residents.

Wuxi introduced Taihu National Tourism Resort, Lingshan Wonderland, Nianhua Bay and other scenic sites to Hong Kong residents. Braised pork ribs, steamed buns, rose cakes and other local foods also proved quite popular among visitors, with glutinous rice dumplings made from black rice selling out on the first day of the carnival.

Purple clay pots, clay figures and works of embroidery, were three traditional souvenirs that were on display in the Wuxi section of the carnival. More conventional gifts, such as postcards, paperweights and fridge magnets were also available for visitors to take away.
