Walked Pingjiang Lu and had a few drinks with friends recently and was impressed by the relative tranquility of the place. It seems a bit well developed in terms of Western style restaurants and shops but the atmosphere has not really changed. No cars/ mopeds allowed, free of honking are already great plusses.

It's not the walk of the road but the people that make this special. The locals speak very little English but smile from ear to ear when they see you. You feel as if your the attraction. Very nice experience where you don't feel like your just a number.

There are many coffee shops, grocery stores and small restaurants on Pingjiang RD. But we do not feel it's as special as told so. Just a OK place to kill time.

Take a slow afternoon walk along the water way of Pingjiang Road. Cafes, restaurants and boutique hotels on your right and water way on your left. Stop by have a coffee or small lunch. Excellent if you have the mood.

Very nice place to spend the afternoon strolling the ancient street of Pingjiang where old houses have been renovated into trendy coffee shops and boutique shops. Nice canal along the way, and a must see visit if you are in Suzhou. Plenty of trinkets and souvenirs to buy along the way. Also a few nice cafe/bars along the canal to... More

Ping Jiang Lu is a very popular old street along side the canal. Usually bustling and full of energy. There is so much to see and always seems to be something new. Some fantastic cafe and places for snacks along the way. Its an essential part of the Suzhou itinerary - don't forget your camera.

A very interesting old street along a small canal where curios, traditional food and restaurants offer delicious dishes. The old houses are quite well restored. This is a very nice walk in a traditional piece of China. A must do !!

This street is nice, shops are nice every thing here (or most of them) is fake, even the pedestrian area, you will be hit by bikes, motorbikes even cars in some place. This place is not peaceful because of the crownd, of the loud tour guide speakers, of klaxon... The canal is disgusting and smells like hell. And once again,... More
