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.

No wonder suzhiu called Venice of the east - I felt like walking in Italy and the street is simply amazing ! Leave enough time to stroll through and to enjoy all the small jobs and food places - I have big seen similar street elsewhere in China - it is pure romantic ;))

For those who are hard pressed for time I would recommend to go to Shantang Street for a rather wholesome experience. For the leisurely paced ones go to both and you would not regret. Pingjiang street starts right from the humble gardens entrance and hence both can be planned together. This is a narrower by lane compared to Shantang. Lined... More

This walking is very great and located in the city. I came back from Tiger Hill with the bus 146. I could get some local food, visit some vintage cafes, small lovely gift shops. Get traditional atmosphere. Must visit !

PingJiang Lu is a nice stroll in Suzhou, taking a look at the past - Although some places are modernised. The street runs along a canal, and has many small independent shops along side. There are often mopeds running along this path, but it's something you just get used to, and is not too bad depending when you go. It... More

A wonderful stroll past boutiques and restaurants and people strolling the canal. Lights and music, smells and silks and all things that delight the senses.
