This was a picturesque road with funky shops and cafes. The first time there we really enjoyed it. The second day we made the mistake of taking a rickshaw driver from the Pingjiang road area to where we could take a boat ride along the grand canal. This was a huge mistake! While you may agree on a price, the... More

A lovely rickshaw ride through parts of the old town and giving views of the canal system. A stop at the local market showed the huge variety of vegetables grown in the area.

This is our favourite place in Suzhou, a must-see. It can be a nightmare at weekends, when it gets really crowded and the atmosphere is spoilt by the noisy, aggressive behaviour of the many e-bike riders, but still well worth a visit. I have not found a better place in China where modernity and tradition go hand in hand, where... More

Overrated and crowded especially during the weekends when the Chinese tourists literally invade the area. Has retained its traditional character and most of the old architecture is preserved. It has the typical cheap Chinese souvenir shops though a bit on the more up side. But overall it fails to transmit the old atmosphere. Maybe because it is literally one of... More

Lots of tourist centric shops, price is high compared to Shanghai but still charming. Good for people watching especially the bridal couples in creative costumes and the photographer and stylist in edgy outfits. Good restaurant and a quaint western teashop by the river next to the bridge.

Running from The Humble Administrator's Garden to Ganjiang Road, the central thoroughfares cross the centre of Suzhou Old City, Ping Jiang Road is known locally as the 1,000 year old street. For over a kilometre, this narrow lane follows the line of one of Suzhou's many canals. Although almost all of the one and two storey buildings are now commercial... More

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
