We stayed inside old town 3D2N by Sept 2014. There are lots of tours coming during nite time. The food here is respectively high. So better having your meals out of the old town. The town is quite at the morning. We can saw many couple come here for wedding photos shooting. A short stayed here is a refreshing experience... More

Perfect night activity in Suzhou to see Red Lanterns hung on all buildings along this pedestrian street along the canals. Your typical trinket shops you find in all tourist streets in China, but very nice vibe at night with the red lanterns. A bit congested with the crowds, but still worth a visit once if you are in Suzhou. Good... More

Gorgeous settings on the canal, Shantang Road provides you with the atmosphere of what you are expecting on your visit to China. The shopping rad is quite modern but the lanterns are so beautiful and the vegetable market is all the sights sounds and smells of China.

Shantang Jie is a picturesque, restored and renovated area along a canal at the Northwest corner of the Suzhou old city that evokes older times in China. Avoid going when the area is crowded, such as weekends. We went on a Sunday, which was a mistake. Not only did the crowds detract from the sights, but the frequent motorbike traffic... More

We were kinda lost when we were trying to find this place, fortunately there was a nice local kid who helped us to find this place. It's a very nice place, with the canals and the shops along the streets selling something to eat and drink. You can also take a boat ride there.

I only made 2 visits, less than a couple of hours each time, and I already came across countless wedding shoots. The backdrop is a photo treat. Almost at any angle, you're likely to capture something beautiful. Architecture aside, some souvenir shops provide a good deal of local products worth a buy.

We were there for one evening and could not believe the beautiful and brightly lit Chinese architecture surrounding the whole street. You can buy souvenirs and have typical Chinese food along this street.
