I live on the 3rd floor of an 11 story building of mostly families right above the biggest and “best” (according to locals) spa in Wuxi facing into the courtyard and the balcony facing a side street. I have 3 bedrooms (one an office, two with full and king size beds), 1 full bath (bathtubs are rare in China but I found one), a small but fully functional kitchen, an indoor balcony (my favorite place to eat), large living room with a sectional couch for additional sleeping and dining room with table and 5 chairs, laundry room and full size outdoor balcony. Yunhe Park is on the other side of the apartment complex and on the canal, and there’s another park across the street/canal from my school which is a 15-20 minute walk. I’m centrally located 10 minutes from the Wuxi Railway Station that can take you to Suzhou in 15 min., Shanghai in 1 hour and Nanjing in 1 hour. You can also go to Beijing on the fast train–anywhere from 4-10 hours, depending on the train. There are several buses that stop in front of my apartment complex and Wuxi just got a Metro up and running this summer. You can get to Taihu Lake within 30 minutes. Bike lanes provide a great way to travel all over Wuxi.
