Taicang is a county-level city under the jurisdiction of Suzhou, Jiangsu province. The city located in the south of the Yangtze River estuary opposite Nantong, being bordered by Shanghai proper to the south, while the river also delineates much of its northeastern boundary along Chongming Island.AdministrationTaicang administers seven towns:Chengxiang (城厢镇), Shaxi (沙溪镇), Ludu (陆渡镇), Liuhe (浏河镇), Fuqiao (浮桥镇), Huangjing (璜泾镇), Shuangfeng (双凤镇)HistoryToponymThe derivation of Taicang is controversial so far. A hydrologist during the Song dynasty, Jia Dan, referred to it in a memorial to the throne. He wrote, "今崑山之東，地名太倉". It was the first time the toponym was recorded.OverviewTaicang is a natural port. Under the Yuan, the city reached its peak between 1271 and 1368. Under the Ming, Taicang's Liuhe Harbor was the departure point for Zheng He's treasure fleets. It was also during this period that the shoals in the Yangtze estuary which later became Chongming Island were placed under the supervision of Taicang Prefecture.Make Taicang central to your China travel plans using our China online sightseeing planner.
