Not impressed. It seems to be loaded with shops targeted at tourists. Where's the original China? Wanted to see more sites dedicated to culture.

Just past the humble garden, at the end of the cobblestone street, turn right at the Family mart and then wander down the narrow street along the canal. The beginning doesn't look like much, but it improves. Cute little tourist area, nice photos, old homes, pubs, food vendors, souvenirs, and a cat cafe. Looks really great at night after the... More

I felt this street was similar with old capital, Kyoto. Even there were many restaurants and souvenir shops along this street, you may be relaxed and experience the old city's life-style. When I visited there, one Chinese played the sounds by harp. It was surely much better to make the suitable atmosphere with this street.

A pedestrian street with touristy feel. Nonetheless you get the view of local Suzhou houses across the canal. You can find hostels and craft stores with local merchandises, and surprisingly, Starbucks. Street food is a good (and cheaper) option if you don't wanna spend too much at a bar or restaurant.

Pingjiang lu is a pedestrian street that runs next to a canal in the oldest part of the city. It's tastefully touristy for sure, but lined with appealing small shops, food places that include great local food - Pinvon one of the best - music bars, tea and coffee shops, all without the noise and fumes of traffic! It's a... More

This street has a nice feel to it. The canal along side is relaxing. The store owners/workers don't harass customers overly much, although there may be a bit more attention than westerners are accustomed to. We tried some tasty street food. By Chinese standards, the prices are quite high, but for your average overseas tourist, not so much. It's worth... More

I just had a short time in Suzhou and an even shorter time on Pingjiang road. I went there at dusk and took pictures, then back the next day with my wife before we checked out of our hotel. Getting there was just a short walk, because we were staying at the Suzhou Scholars Hotel nearby. I recommend going both... More
