Unfortunately, it was raining on the afternoon which we were there. Nevertheless, we walked the entire road and witnessed the beautiful scenery. My family had some wonderful photo moments along the way too. Good experience for us!

Our hotel, the Little Folk House, was very close to this street, so we visited this street everyday for 4 days while we were staying in Suzhou. Although this street is a tourist street, there are local shops and great places to discover. Amazing street...More

We started at one end of the street, making our way to the Humble Administrators Garden. Do be mindful of the electric scooters, who seem to think it’s fine to zoom down amongst pedestrians. Some wonderful shops to try the unusual foods & sweet delights...More

Here is an old street with old buildings and atmosphere. Not only for the canal boat ride but there are lots of souvenir, shops, tea houses and Cafes to try out. Classic Chinese surroundings. Tourist spot for sure but worth a visit. Quaint. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

If you are a bit of a foodie and love trying new things, this authentic street is fantastic. As vegetarians we sometimes struggle, however the Guokui (hopefully spelt correctly) street food snack was delicious. It's just nice to mooch down this lovely street for an...More

They are a bit like crab apples in the uk. Sour and then covered in molten sugar a bit like mini toffee apples.

Probably way too late for you but you can easily get to either of the gardens from the Suzhou train station in about 30 minutes walking or by taxi. Try to take your train from the main station in Shanghai —it seems relatively easy to pick up tickets at the international window there. Ticket pick up is in a separate building to the right of the main station. I think kids will like the Lion Grove Garden, the HA garden is so crowded it may not be enjoyable. The pagodas are fun to visit, but the...More

Suzhou for one night including trip to Tongli (6 Replies)
Coming from Beijing on overnight train, I will have one night in Suzhou (staying at Mingtown-Suzhou Youth Hostel in Pingjiang Road) and the following day will be going to Hangzhou. How would you organise your time in Suzhou to include a trip to Tongli? Would you visit Tongli on the day of arrival or go the next day in the morning before coming back to Suzhou and travelling on to Hangzhou?

It won't make that great difference to tour Tongli on your arrival or departure day. Personally prefer to do Tongli first on arrival and then focus on Suzhou tour in the balance times to avoid too much transfers on the same departing day.
