Contemporary shopping street. International brands (e.g. Zara) and local brands for contemporary clothing items. We were looking for shoes but we had too big feet - oups. I found these kind of items to be rather on the expensive side in both Souzhou and Shanghai. Impact of inflation in China and very low Canadian dollar? Don't know. And I am... More

There was a shop selling embroidery near the temple. The female staff was friendly and obliging. She talked about the importance of the uprightness of businesses and the authenticity of her business when confronted by another customer on the 'charging' - that it was double that of what his tour guide had told him earlier. Apparently she was a very... More

High class shopping in Suzhou. But if modern stuff is what you are looking for, better to go shanghai Nanking Street.

Came here with a tour group. This was a visit to the Times Square with the largest LED display at certain fixed time for a few minutes show each time. It was very quiet during our visit so we went to a supermarket in a mall instead. The malls here are pretty modern and new. The river scenery was quite... More

A good place for shopping. You could easily spend hours here, but since I went here in the evening, right before closing time, I didn't have that much time. I visited some shops and ate delicious dim sum at a small restaurant.

There were many local food in this area. We found the cutest dim sum here, though taste were just ok. There were many shops here. Alibaba shopping centre is also located here. This place is pretty big and if you like shopping, u can spent the whole afternoon here.

It's one of the most famous street in the city, several big department stores locate at the west part of it; many international brands and local brands here; many shops are selling silk products; and also many hotels around, so it's very convenient for visitors. Except that, it's nothing special.

Not being a shopper, I can't really comment on the shopping here. But I do enjoy eating, and since Suzhou is famous for its xiaochi (snacks), I figured it would be worth a visit. I was not disappointed. There is a street located in this area (can't remember the name) where there is stall after stall of awesome snacks unique... More

Had dinner with friends at one of the restaurants at night. The street was all lit, really pretty to look at. There are a lot of stores that sell local food and snacks. Felt very safe to walk on the street.
