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.

When you are in Suzhou and want to do some good shopping, this is the center of old town shopping and dinning. Here you have lots of shopping alternatives all from markets, branded shops and luxury shops. Starts in the east end with more regular shops and ends in west with some luxury shops. In the middle you find many... More

If you have time to kill in Suzhou I would suggest visiting here. There are tons of shops and food stalls that repeat themselves over! Lots of people but a good vibe in the evening!

Got dropped here by taxi and tried to use a lot of ATMs in the Main Street to no avail. Walked down guan Qian road a little bit and found a Bank of China bank with a choice of languages on the ATM. Excellent. Many of the shops were well known brands such as Gap and Jeans West. None of... More

My friends took us here to visit the old town of Suzhou. It was right off the subway and super easy to find. The first thing you notice is the gate. It was somewhat crowded but it’s China so get used to it. There were some pretty cheap stores at the first left and the milk tea was pretty decent.... More

A typical place for tourists, once you have visited, you have seen all touristy places in China! Nothing special!

The road is broad and car-free. It looks pretty charming in the evenings with all the light on. But I wonder if you can find anything special there, because the shops are all the same. There is an old Taoist temple hidden in the street, but there is nothing left except all the same stalls try to cheat tourists. Just... More
