Xihui park, Huishan temple, Jichang garden

October-November 2008
From any point in Wuxi you can see the Huishan hill (惠山 - Huìshān), in the eastern part of which the Xihui park (锡惠公园 - Xīhuì gōngyuán) is located and on its territory — Jichang Garden (寄畅园 - Jìchàngyuán) and Huishan Temple (惠山寺 - Huìshānsì). The park is situated not far from the hotel Wuxi Ramada Encore in which I stayed, and therefore, I decided to walk there.

In the park itself I failed to find a cable railway, and it so happened that I climbed the top of the hill along a forest path. Local people seem to like that park: all paths and glades are filled with holidaymakers, but with this all cabins of the cable railway go up and down empty.
