Ligongdi, or Ligong Causeway, a 1,400-meter-long dike built along the famed Jinji Lake, got its name after the family name "Li" of its creator Li Chaoqiong, during the reign of Emperor Guangxu of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

Roaming the causeway along the lake, tourists may be delighted to find it is as if they are walking in a landscape painting depicting old stone bridges with carvings, quaint white-wash houses roofed with black tiles.

The scenic and historical causeway, which is now been a bustling and prosperous waterfront commercial street in the Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP), has become one of the most important landmarks in Suzhou.

The Ligong Causeway business street is a modern project finished in 2006 to diversify services including catering, entertainment, sight-seeing, and a cultural fair. You may find a number of noted Chinese, Danish, Italian, German, Japanese, and Belgian restaurants, bars, museums, and art galleries such as the Yao Jianping Embroidery Art Museum, Basel Contemporary Art Museum, Cai Yundi Stone Carving Museum, Harley Motor Club, and China Ink Tattoo, scattered along the lake in the Ligong Causeway scenic area.

Suzhou is famous for its superb embroidery art, which was selected for the national intangible cultural heritage list, and Yao Jianping, who was born in the city and was a master recognized for her marvelous embroidery craftsmanship.

Ligong Causeway is one of the best destinations known for its amazing nightscape and fun facilities.
