Once called Fùtǔ (富土) before changing its name to Tónglǐ (铜里) and then ending up with the name Tónglǐ (同里; different first character), this lovely village is only 18km southeast of Sūzhōu. A leisurely day trip from town (or for those en route to Shànghǎi), Tónglǐ boasts a rich, historical canalside atmosphere and weather-beaten charm. A restrained carnival atmosphere reigns but the languorous tempo is frequently shredded by marauding tour groups that sweep in, especially at weekends.
