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

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. You may visit my blog for some photos here: http://lmwhy.blogspot.com/2014/09/suzhou.html

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.
