太湖佳绝处 The Supreme Sight of Taihu Lake

        “太湖佳绝处,毕竟在鼋头”。鼋头渚地处无锡,因其形如鼋头突入太湖之中而得名。始建于1918年的鼋头渚公园,本是民族资本家杨翰西的私家园林“横云山庄”。此处有青山秀水,辅以精致的园林建筑,有“太湖第一胜景”的美称。

"The supreme sight of Taihu Lake, after all, lies in Turtle Head Isle." Turtle Head Isle (Yuantouzhu) is located in Wuxi and derives its name from the way the peninsula juts out into the lake like the head of a turtle protruding from the water. Turtle Head Isle Park, built in 1918, was originally known as "Flying Cloud Villa", a private garden of national capitalist Yang Hanxi. Beautiful mountains and waters are complemented by exquisite landscape and architecture in this park, earning it the title of "Taihu Lake's most scenic spot".

        这个无锡的“桃花源”,有悬崖峭壁,有秀美园林,但更加吸引人的是其中观赏太湖的绝佳位置。我是个土生土长的无锡人,从小就对这个充满温情和流水的地方无比眷恋。长大后不管去到多远,都会不自觉的寻找美丽水景,与我心中不能割舍的太湖进行比较。毫无疑问,变化多样的太湖景色始终是我的最爱。就拿“鼋渚春涛”一景举例,在风和日丽的时候,太湖平静无波,如天上落下的一面宝镜;若是遇到狂风暴雨,太湖不再秀丽端庄,轰鸣如万马奔腾般的巨浪不停地翻滚。

Here in Wuxi's "Utopia", there are awesome cliffs and beautiful gardens, but what is most appealing about this place is its superior vantage point overlooking Taihu Lake. Born and raised in Wuxi, I have always had a special place for these romantic waters in my heart. Even as an adult I find myself seeking out water landscapes wherever I travel, and comparing them mentally to my beloved Taihu Lake. And of course, nothing ever comes close to the ever-changing beauty of Taihu. For example, at "Turtle Islet Spring Waves" on a fine, sunny day, Taihu Lake becomes serene and tranquil like a jeweled mirror fallen from heaven; when fierce winds and pounding rain take away her dignified calm, Taihu's great waves surge and thunder like ten thousand galloping horses.


        四季变幻中的鼋头渚风貌万千。我最喜欢的是樱花烂漫的时节,穿梭在一片花海中,那是怎样的惬意。难怪人说“人游花海,花映人脸”。樱花谷里种植樱花3万余株,面积千余亩,有68个樱花品种,有“中华第一赏樱胜地”的美誉。山环水复,群峦绵亘,波光粼粼,帆影点点,落樱缤纷。短暂的花期,却为我们留下永久的记忆。

Winter, spring, summer, and fall, Turtle Head Isle undergoes a thousand makeovers. My favorite is when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. What a feeling, wading about in a sea of flowers! No wonder it was said, "Man swims in a sea of flowers, the flowers reflect the man's face". There are over 30,000 cherry trees in the cherry valley, covering over 1000 mu (1000 mu = approx. 165 acres) with 68 different varieties of cherry trees. It is known as the best scenic destination in China for appreciating cherry blossoms. An unbroken stretch of mountains surrounding the pristine waters, sunlight glistening off the waves, sailboats dotting the lake surface, a swirl of falling cherry petals—the blossoms may fade within days but these scenes may stay imprinted in our minds forever.
