One of Tongli's picturesque waterways
Enter Tongli (entrance ticket required) on Ming Qing Jie , named for the Ming- and Qing-era
wooden houses that line it. Today, the houses are filled with souvenir shops, restaurants and
snack stalls. Be sure to try the local sweet lotus root (tongli lianou) and sweetbread called jiu
niang bing - decent, reasonably priced versions are available at Lin's Store and Gu Xian Cun
on Ming Qing Jie. You'll want to come back here for lunch at Xiangge Jiulou , see 1 , to try
the local specialities, or the Nanyuan Teahouse , see 2 , for an atmospheric and quintessen-
tial experience of Tongli.
