Fun, but mopeds should be banned!

Beautiful walk along a waterway shops and food stalls. Picture pretty. Very safe except for the frequent mopeds that speed by. They should be banned.

For me personally I find it a must. All the food stalls and the atmosphere are just great. Just strolling around is a wonderful experience. 1-2hours are easy to enjoy.

This is a cool little place to get lost for a while and imagine that you are in "old " Suzhou. Ancient streets beside a canal full of little shops, restaurants and coffee shop. You can try the local delicacies of glutinous rice flour shaped into beautiful designs and filled with sweet red bean paste. Shaped like a rose, animals,... More

This is a great canal walking street with many shops, cafes, and restaurants. It is a very busy street on weekends and holidays, so if you want to avoid the crowds, don't go during these times. The shops are very creatively designed/decorated with a plethora of interesting and creative things to buy. I abhor shopping, but really enjoyed each time... More

This is a way better place to experience old Suzhou than Tangshan Road. The streets are more quaint, shops are more authentic (better quality and cheaper). Be sure to also check out the art gallery/ shop of local artist Xie Yousu - whose name in Mandarin could mean "thank you friends for visiting Suzhou).

This is a street worth walking any time of the year but when U walk thru during Autumn/Spring, the feel is different. Finger food and Pubs and nice music on the go.... Sit beside the stream and listen to the bustling sound of the street and have a sip of Coffee....Wowlah! this is life...

Suzhou is a must visit in East China, and this Pingjiang Road is a must see in Suzhou. As someone who grew up in a nearby city that has replaced all of its millennium-old architecture with modern-looking mediocre buildings, I cannot help but deeply appreciate the effort these Suzhou-ers made to preserve the ancient culture and architecture. If you don't... More
