Design Challenges
One of the challenges set by similar areas around Taiping Ancient Town. There are many tourist towns around Suzhou, which will have a certain impact on the formation of Taiping Ancient Town. This also requires Taiping Ancient Town to be different from other ancient towns in planning and positioning. One of the challenges is the implementation. As the construction of Taiping Ancient Town has been in disrepair for a long time, the environmental quality has not been well protected. Future development and implementation will also cause difficulties.
