Great shopping, and you can haggle!

If you speak any Mandarin, you will get a lower price at these shops. Never take the first price they offer you, and always haggle. This is a great shopping street, and I would... read more

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

This place is so mobbed with people you have to be in the right frame of mind to go here. There are 100's of stores a temple and many restaurants. I take people there to shop for cheap chinese junks and good silk. Mei mei has a great shop where you can buy nice scarves and silk. She gives you... More

For about the basic cab fare from the new railway station, we got to the well-known Quan Qian shopping area. Passing a memorial arch at its south end, we window-shopped for a few blocks and then turned left to branch streets to find the Suzhou annual snacks festival. We pleasantly tried various kinds of snacks from the other parts of... More

If you like to find a bargain by haggling for a "name" brand or something that resembles a name brand, then Shopping Street Suzhou is the place for you. You don't even have to go into the stores as their are plenty of little men who will take you to see lots of "real, very cheap items", promising best quality... More

As a foreigner, it is quite intimidating to be amongst a sea of black haired heads with no room to move. It is best to visit this street during the week as the weekend is very busy. If you don't like crowds, don't bother, the shops are not that important or special . Some interesting stores, granted but they are... More

Anywhere in China will be crowded, so be in the right mental space to tolerate crowds. This street is ok to wander around, do some shopping and get some food. You will find coffee here and there. You can take some interesting photos. If possible, go on a weekday when it will be less crowded. Worth a visit if you... More

Something alike the HuangFu Jing in Beijing and Nanjing Road in Shanghai. If you have not been to Guan Quan Street, you cameo consider to have visited Suzhou. There are also some boutique shopping in the area, namely The Matro, LV, Montblanc, Hermes, LongChamp, etc...

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
