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

This was the best walking tours in Suzhou. Not too crowded, no cars, minimal bicycle and motor scooter traffic. Pingjiang Road runs parallel to a canal in the old city. It's about 1 1/2 km long and carries mostly pedestrian traffic. Besides the views of the canals and the old buildings in the surrounding residential neighborhoods, visitors can stop at... More

Great way to see old China which is not so easy to find with the mass uprising of new buildings, high rises, and factories. Take a stroll, it's worth it!

A place to spend your evening away while enjoy to see the reserved old building. The street is full of all kind of hawker selling from antics, cloths to foods. It's a must when you visit Suzhou.
