Modernity and Tradition

Surrounded by cute little bridges that cross the road. This is a great place to take photos. Lots shop, good restaurant. Take a boat ride along the canal. Very enjoyable walk.

Nice but too much touristy, too many people with the continuous and annoying horn sound of the scooters that want to pass through.

First day @ Suzhou. Pax: 3, taking cab for RMB 33 from Suzhou Art & Craft Museum. Not much bus stand there plus we can't walk anymore... The street is pretty long. We are a bit disappointed as all the goods sold in boutique, souvenirs or lifestyle shop are expensive. Just the same selling in Malaysia after the currency conversion.... More

An interesting street to have a walk down. Very touristy and you are constantly badgered by people wanting you to come into their shop 'just to look' or to sell you a tour - almost always completely in Chinese. Always easy to say no and keep walking though.

It's nice to walk along the river, but it does get a little too touristy. The food and goods there are relatively pricy. It would be nice to get on a boat ride in the evening when the lights are all out. Looks really nice.

I'm sorry, this tiny dirty canal with thick green smelly water and dilapidated houses around is far from Venice. The city is not very nice either. Hangzhou is a much MUCH better choice than Suzhou if you're looking for a 2+day trip from Shanghai.

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
