This is a pleasant pathway bordered on one side by a small lovely channel and on the other by trendy bars, restaurants and shops. I found some of the bars/restaurants quite cute and some of the shops quite original. There are also some houses in the ancient Suzhou style, i.e. with white walls and a black tile roof. The are...

Was expecting a crowded tourist trap full of gawdy stores selling angry birds tshirts but was delighted to find a beautifully preserved old town with nice boutiques lining the main street. Wander off it (especially to go to the couple's retreat garden) and you're in for blessed solitude amongst old houses where people carry on about their business as if... More

There's a lot of small restaurants and shops here and it's really nice place for walk. Particularly at night when everything is in lights. But it's also really crowded - during the day or in the evning there is just too many tourists.

This is a must if you are visiting Suzhou. The streets are iconic of ancient China, and is a real blast from the past in the centre of a busy city. However, recently there have been more an more tourists, so I suggest going in the morning. The later in the day it gets, the more tourists, so be aware... More

A very beautiful, though small pedestrian, or bike street with a blend of western and Chinese culture. You can enjoy coffee, as well as Chinese hamburgers or dumplings

I loved it. Walking around in these street with the many small restaurants and shops was great. Very photogenic. But it's a bit too touristic. It was crowded. Such a shame. But if you go off the main road you'll see the real old houses, but it will be dark there, no restaurants and no shops.

I took a stroll down the full length of the road early on a beautiful clear morning at the end of July. The sunlight cast long shadows, the businesses were still shuttered, only a few locals were up and about. A very pleasant start to the day.

I tried many different cafes while working in Suzhou (avoiding the typical Starbucks and Costa) and Momi Cafe along Pingjiang Road definitely had the best coffee - a much darker roast than most places and they are all double-shots (so thankfully avoiding much confusion). They also use fresh milk as opposed to long-life. Also, if you like a bit of... More

Very well maintained. Lot of shops on the road. One can buy good soveniers and articles. Worth visiting for few hours.
