An introduction to the Scenic Area of Jinji Lake
Some people say Suzhou is like a double-sided embroidery and the ancient city proper is the frontal side. The rail transit extends eastwards away from Suzhou City proper all the way to a lake called Jinji Lake, which side constitutes the other side of Suzhou.
As a national AAAAA rated scenic area, Jinji Lake is the only one oriented towards business travel among many other areas of the same level. Therefore, it is a model “national business travel demonstration area”. The total area of the scenic spot is 11.5 square kilometers(of which the water area is 7.4 square kilometers), and the area is laid out for business travel in the principle of “building the whole area into scenic area and facilitate tourism by business activities” . With an investment of 8.953 billion RMB and centering around Jinji Lake, the whole area has been constructed into five functional regions: conference and expo, shopping, dining and relaxation, city sightseeing, and central waterscape area.
