developing local

in modern Shanghai commerce since the early 20th century. Zhou Dynasty Wuxi was founded 3,000 years ago by two fugitive princes, Taibo (Wu Taibo) and Zhongyong, of the Zhou (Zhou Dynasty) from Central China, who intended to give their brother Jili (季歷) the throne. The two princes settled down in Meili (梅里), which is believed to be today's Meicun, Wuxi. (some historic records indicate a location somewhere in today's Suzhou). They helped developing local agriculture and waterways. The area soon flourished. After the death of Taibo, who had no heir, the emperor of Zhou enthroned a descendant of his family king of the State of Wu. The king named his kingdom "Gowu". Taibo's shrine was set up in today's Meicun and the original wood structure was destroyed during the wars over the course of history. However, it has been renovated several times and today's architecture dates mostly to the Qing dynasty. A stone carved with sayings by Confucius can still be seen in Taibo Shrine. Jiangyin is in the Jiangnan cultural region of China that speaks Northern Wu Chinese, which means the native Jiangyin dialect has a very high degree of mutual intelligibility with other Northern Wu Chinese dialects like those of nearby Wuxi, Suzhou, and Shanghai. Jiangyin dialect is subjectively considered to have somewhat harder sounds compared to the softer, more flowing Northern Wu Chinese dialects such as those of Wuxi and Suzhou. However, because of the government mandated use of Standard Mandarin as the modicum of instruction in the educational system and in the media, the younger generation have a native fluency in Standard Mandarin unlike the Jiangnan accented Standard Mandarin spoken by the older generation. As is becoming more common in other urban Jiangnan areas like Shanghai, this policy is leading to many younger children in urban Jiangyin only being able to understand but not speak the native Jiangyin dialect.

Jiangyin cuisine is a member of the Jiangsu cuisine prevalent in the Jiangnan region. It is similar to neighboring Wuxi, Suzhou, and Shanghai cuisine. Like other styles of Jiangsu cuisine, Jiangyin food is sweet in comparison to other Chinese cuisines. Unlike Sichuan cuisine and Hunan cuisine, Jiangyin food is not spicy. Because of Jiangyin is right next to the Yangtze River, freshwater fish and small fresh water shrimp are commonly consumed in addition to pork.

'''Suzhou''', formerly romanized (Chinese Postal Map Romanization) as '''Soochow''', is a major city in the southeast of Jiangsu Province in Eastern China (East China), adjacent to Shanghai Municipality. It is a major economic centre and focal point of trade and commerce, and the second largest city in the province after its capital Nanjing. The city is situated on the lower reaches of the Yangtze River and the shores of Lake Tai and belongs to the Yangtze River Delta region. Administratively, Suzhou is a prefecture-level city with a population of 4.33 million in its city proper, and a total resident population (as of 2013) of 10.58 million in its administrative area, which incorporates neighboring suburban regions and the satellite cities of Kunshan, Lianyungang, Taicang, and Changshu. This statement is based on data from local government, while a United Nations report below claims its (urban) population is 5.156 million in 2014. Its urban population grew at an unprecedented rate of 6.5% between 2000 and 2014, which is the highest among cities with more than 5 million people.

Founded in 514 BC, Suzhou has over 2,500 years of history, with an abundant display of relics and sites of historical interest. At around 100 AD, during the Eastern Han Dynasty, it became one of the ten largest cities in the world mostly due to emigration from North China. With high per capita incomes, Suzhou's Human Development Index ratings is roughly comparable to a moderately developed country, making it one of the most highly developed and propserous cities on the Chinese mainland.

The city's canals, stone bridges, pagodas, and meticulously designed gardens (Chinese garden) have contributed to its status as one of the top tourist attractions in China. The classical gardens in Suzhou (Classical Gardens in Suzhou) were added to the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1997 and 2000. Suzhou is often dubbed the "Venice of the East (List of places called Venice of the East)" or "Venice of China".
