Small place. Read it's relevant histories before you come to visit will be better, otherwise it might be boring. The leaning tower is beautiful. Do not recommend to visit in June and July, as that's the raining season of the year, the weather is extremely hot and humid. Suggest to visit it in the morning and then take a rowing... More

We visited on a saturday afternoon around 4 pm. It was around 38 degrees celcius outside. Maybe that was the reason it was not to busy. Lots of tourist shops indeed, but you still get the idea how it used to be. Beautiful surroundings.

This old pedestrian street next to a canal offers shops, amazing and delicious street food, and atmosphere galore. We visited in the evening when the lights and activity was great. Not too crowded. Don't miss.

Lots of people, food, sights to appreciate. Worth spending a lazy afternoon wandering around. Bring a good camera and a shutter-happy friend. (There's even a cat cafe somewhere in the middle.)

We started our outing at the twin pagodas then headed to the the south end of Pingjiang Road. There are very lovely little stores for shopping, tea houses, etc. We walked all the way north to end at the humble administrator's garden. A really lovely afternoon excursion.

you can catch a boat ride through the canals next to Pingjiang Road. The boat leaves right from the entrance of the Humble Administrator's Garden, and is inexpensive. Really fun little trip to get a feel of canal living. The trip down the canal lasts about 45 min and is very relaxing. Highly recommended. Note: I didn't bother walking down... More

I think this was one of the highlights of our trip to Suzhou. I tried a lot of different foods, which all were truly great and new to me - sweet Pinguin shaped dumplings, black stinky tofu, vegan spicy sausage things, freshly frozen yoghurt ice cream...and there was more, but I was pretty full. After all the food we saw... More

The ancient street has its very own charm. I felt really at peace while walking through the streets,taking in the sights and views along the street. There are many shops selling a variety of things from books, to souvenirs. Visited the street many times throughout my stay to grab souvenirs! Oh, there's also Momi cafe! The street links to other...
