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.

The street shows you the best of the historical streets of Suzhou, the shops are really tourist orientated but a very nice place to visit also during the evenings.

Pingjiang Road has been kept the way that old Suzhou used to be and is a really pleasant walk. Lots of unique shops and restaurants, although don't expect great Chinese Cuisine here as the food places are designed to cater to the tourist market. I took at 40 minute boat ride which gave a unique view from the canal of... More

What a neat stretch of street! Full of nick nacks, cheap, moderate and expensive. Your choice. In my opinion, it's very different than the Yuyuan market in Shanghai, or Qinghe in Hangzhou. Somehow this place feels a lot less hectic, more enjoyable of a walk and they sell somewhat different items. Every block or so, the street provides westernized cafes... More
