The canals and the buildings right next to them are picturesque. Lots of tourists and tacky gift shops.

First night in Suzhou and as I was on my own for business, concierge recommended me to visit here for some local foods as there are many snack size stores for tasting rather then sitting in a restaurant. I found it a nice long alley to visit with many boutique stores not only with foods but arts and crafts. Worthwhile... More

Entered the area from the main gate on Ganjiang Donglu (main road of Suzhou), and it was a nice and quiet start, before the hustle of Guanqian pedestrian area. You can enjoy the bridges and little houses, but keep your money and appetite for the local, real restaurants of the 'real' city, much better than those pricey, touristic booths.

Traditional boatman row their wooden boats along the canal, Venice of China. Another interesting feature of this canal lifestyle is seeing the locals doing their washing and laundry by the side of...

Pingjiang road is a beautiful road along the channel, full of bars, cafes and shops. It is equally beautiful during the day time and night time. Great sight to have a walk

Definitely worth a visit if you want to see where the young locals hangout. Good food, do stand in line for the cheap fresh "hand pulled bread". Each customer is limited to 3 bags, 6 RMB A BAG. IT TASTED GREAT.

There were many quaint little shops with a good mixture of traditional Chinese food and snacks as well as modern chic cafes and shops. I must say that I'm impressed with the improvement of service standards over here. Service staff are friendly and helpful mostly. It may also be that Suzhou is more sophisticated than many other China cities. Quite... More

The is a very nice traditional street along a canal bank and lined with old shops and eateries. The street food is good although the tofu smell is a bit on top. The only downside is that it is a bit touristy but it still feels authentic.
