Enjoy autumn on the Jinji Lake banks


The short autumn in Suzhou has mounted a color show at the Jinji Lake, with a “traditional Chinese painting scroll” slowly rolling out on its banks.

Also, like the attractive beautiful natural scenery, the seasonal food is hard to resist.

The hairy crabs, a specialty of Suzhou, are the most delicious in autumn, with the best crab roe and cream. The Jinji Lake Grand Hotel’s Oct Hairy Crab Festival is underway where you can sample:


Stir-fried Hairy Crabs and Glutinous Rice Cakes

Crab Curry

Minced Crab Meat and Bean Curd

Cangshu Mutton is also an important part of the autumn specialties.

The recipe, which has a long history, brings out the best authentic taste of mutton.

A sip of the milky white soup will ensure that the flavor will linger in the mouth for a long time.

Other seasonal delicacies are: Lotus Root with Sweet-scented Osmanthus Flowers; and Taro with Sweet-scented Osmanthus Flowers.

So, tour Jinji Lake, and taste seasonal food.
