A local saying goes that half of the history of East China's Wuxi city is in Liangxi district. The numerous ancient bridges, which epitomize history, have witnessed the vicissitudes of the district.

Qingming Bridge, more than 400 years old, is the oldest, largest, and most well-preserved single-hole stone arch bridge in Wuxi. Two emperors of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) passed over the bridge and renowned folk artist A Bing often played the erhu on it.

The Wuqiao Bridge is the first bridge built along the Wuxi section of the Grand Canal. Rebuilt in 1993, the bridge, reputed as the best in Wuxi at that time, extends 1,130 meters in length and 30m in width.

There are many other renowned bridges in Liangxi, including the Kuatang Bridge, which features scenic Grand Canal landscape, the Jinlian Bridge, the city's most ancient stone bridge, and the Lianrong Bridge, a witness to the prosperous financial industry in Wuxi.
