This is picture postcard old China with lovely shops on one side and a canal on the other. Tip: you can find a post office where you can buy and send international postcards in this street. Very helpful staff.

This street provides a glimpse into old china, as portrayed by traditional Chinese art and classical chinese literature. The houses and canal remain the way they would have been centuries ago, and their current residents luve in much the same way as people would have generations ago, relying primarly ob the river for their day-to-day needs. Picturesque, and very photogenic.... More

We made it appoint to see the development of Pingjiang Road - actually it is not a road; its a Promenade flanked on one hand by water and on the other by shops, eateries, restaurants, arts and crafts boutiques under willow trees and between bamboo groves.
