We came by metro and took a short walk to the visit the grand canal. There were many smaller tributaries around this canal. You can take boat rides to slowly enjoy the area or you can walk. We walked and it was quite enjoyable. Congested with tourists though, like most tourist sites in China.

History goes back few hundred year BC. It was effort of few million people to connect Hangzhou and Beijing on water 💧 . Winter time is not bad for cruising but hot 🥵 Sumer could be refreshing spending on boat 🚣‍♂️

The Grand Canal is a expansive UNESCO site, with the waterway stretching from Beijing to Hangzhou, passing by Suzhou along the way. In Suzhou, the city's waterways are part of the Grand Canal, and many areas along it are filled with historical sites and architecture. There is a walking trail along the whole waterway surrounding old Suzhou town. The different parts I saw in the city were really pretty, both in the day and at nights.

This is a popular bus tour spot but it is not clean and shiny. It's a little gritty here. Lots of locals. And that makes it fun. There is some walking to do. It is very busy. Find someplace to eat and linger awhile. It's worth a visit.
