Huishan Ancient Town in Wuxi, East China's Jiangsu province, is reputed as one of the four best spots in China to appreciate autumn scenery along with Anhui's Hongcun village, Tachuan village, and Jiangxi's Huangli.

The Jiangnan region is dotted with ancient towns, while Huishan town is unique.

The ancient town not only has small bridges and streaming rivers, but also has green mountains. In addition to delicious food, the town boasts a laidback living environment.

Two emperors in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) visited Huishan seven times in total and ancient literati left numerous poems and stories about the ancient town.

Jichang Garden in the town is absolutely an indispensable stop in autumn. Built beside Huishan Mountain, Jichang Garden is at this time of year transformed into a colorful palette with mountain and rivers complementing each other.

The town's 1,600-year-old Huishan Temple is home to a 600-year-old ginkgo tree which is still exuberant and covered with thick golden yellow leaves in late autumn, attracting numerous tourists and local residents who seek a glimpse of its magnificence

Huishan town also has an Azalea Garden that in spring blooms with fiery azaleas in a visual splendor. In autumn, it is still a colorful visual feast.
