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.

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.

This part fo Suzhou is certainly very popular with locals. They come here to eat fast food or Chinese favorites and shop for clothes and mobile phones. In short, it is just your bog standard pedestrian mall you can find anywhere in China. Some attempt has been made to make it look more "antique" by adding some superficially traditional motifs,...

This long walking street is overly priced. It is also crowded during the weekend. Note really my fave place. But if you have Chinese friends to go with you then this could be fun

Visited this “Shopping Street” several times for both shopping and dining. Situated in the middle of the old city, there are many departmental stores, fashion chain stores and restaurants (serve mainly Chinese food) in this “walking street”. You can literally spend a night shopping and dining until you are ready to go to bed. However, merchandise offered at the shops... More
