Guan Qian Shopping Street is a long stretch of pedestrian shopping and has hundreds of shops, big and small. I, a self-proclaimed shopper somehow could not manage to buy a lot from here. Perhaps lots of items selling in the shops here are readily available in where i am from. I was hoping to find lots of small shops with... More

This is most busiest and superb shopping street you get to see in Suzhou. From small shops to big shops it's kind a suitable shopping street which suites everyone. Or just a window shopping

Lots of shops and restaurants--small and large. Don't misunderstand me because I found Suzhou to be a charming city to visit and wander about. I guess if window shopping is your thing, then Quanqian Street might be for you.

The best shopping experience in Suzhou. Hundreds of stores ranging from clothing and jewelry to traditional food and gifts. The weekends are usually very busy so be prepared for crowds.

A place for shopping and dining, other than that, nothing much you can find here. You can find all kind of local and oversea brand here, many restaurants which included few famous Suzhou restaurant like Song He Lou and etc. Weekend will be a little bit crowded too.

This place is a combination of Shanghai's Pedestrian Street on Nanjing Road as well as Shanghai's Cheng Huang Miao. It's filled with restaurants and shops with the main attraction being the temple. It's definitely the most popular area in Suzhou.

Great area for shopping and eating (quick or sit-down). We came here with our tour group of 30 people to eat at the Sunhelou Restaurant, so it was perfect for people to wander, shop, and enjoy all the lights at night before sitting down to a nice meal. Prior to coming here, we took a boat ride through the Suzhou... More

Not crowded at all when we were there on a Sunday. We had fun trying various street food, tasty and cheap. Great bargain if you know what to buy and what not to. Distinctive shops included Cai Zhi Zhai that sells handcraft candies and a few other handmade silverware shops.

A shopping haven! You might wanna try to wander off into the smaller adjacent streets, where you are likely to get a good bargain. Tip: follow the students. There is also a food street, where cheap and good food is served. Must try: barbecued fish.
