Not only this road but worth a visit for the entire area

ShuZhou is a beautiful town, it's worth a 2 day visit here, relax and try out their food. And remember to bring an umbrella.

This street, which dates back to the Song dynasty, is the center of the Old Town. Lining it are historic buildings and canals that harken back to innocent times. It's a fun place to take a stroll. There are bookstores, antique shops, teahouses as well as restaurants that offer the famous Su cuisine (Jiangsu cuisine) which is noted for its... More

At the end of our canal ride we were dropped off here. It is awesome. Small canal side strip with shops & food. There was some crazy food along the way, we tried some stinky tofu, let's just say, it was a while I was in China thing. I highly suggest checking this street out if you get the chance,... More

Certainly, this place was beautiful, a mini canal town. Shops however, were touristy but tastefully decorated in a contemporary fashion. Do not expect to get old artsy stuff there. Still worth a walk though

lots of ancient buildings and river canal where there are small canoes using the channel to conduct business. It is very clean and safe for family to visit. Ancient building but yet with lots of modern amenities. Lots of restaurants, cafe, merchant and bars.

This street is precious and it has an Old China charm that is irresistible. I can understand why it is filled with tourists all the time. I have seen very few Western tourists though. Mostly Chinese. There are boutique stores with colorful postcards, candy, silk scarves and tea everywhere and the canal is lit up at night. It really is... More

This street is very famous in the city. You walk along the canal and can observe some local life. Lots of shops, restaurants and steetfood - definetely something to do when in Suzhou, but don't expect to feel like you are in Venice.

Pingjiang Road is a quaint, picturesque street populated by numerous eateries, tea-houses, hostels, street vendors, and specialty shops. A canal lines the walk, and helps cement the quite magical and festive atmosphere. Take a stroll, take in good food and bad beer while imbibing the uniquely Chinese ambiance and aesthetic. Well worth a stop if you find yourself in Suzhou.
