All of China wants to visit the fabled city of Suzhou, and all of China that does visit Suzhou takes a walk along the narrow pedestrianized street that runs alongside a narrow canal near the centre of the old town, with alleyways and small bridges and lots of traditional houses and small boutique-type shops and eateries. Very charming, especially if... More

Almost 2 km road with a lot of small shops and food offering places, as well as some restaurants. Concentrated possibility to try Chinese food and buy typical souvenirs.

Just a simple street with restaurants , shops. Nothing much to see. A place that you can skip! Not recommended!

Nice place, but crowded and a lot of shops along the way, even a Starbucks... You'll need to go to sides streets to look for more authenticity otherwise it's one tourist cheap stuff shop after another and any kind of food

Walk along a charming canal with boats traveling along the water. Eat at traditional Chinese food stalls or get a Starbucks coffee, if that is your preference. See UNESCO gardens or the Suzhou museum at the beginning or end of your journey, depending on your starting point. Pingjiang Road is a quaint, but sometimes crowded old commercial street in Suzhou.

We actually stumble upon this LaoJie be chance but found it to be very pleasant with lots or little shops selling all knick knacks and food. Not overly crowded in the evening but I do find that they should limit or not allowed the numerous electric scooters scampering up and down the narrow lane. Accident waiting to happen. Worth a...

We walked the length of Pingjiang and did find some really nice spots to appreciate the canals and the buildings. It would be better served if they did not have any vehicle traffic as the motorbikes come up behind you and beep, beep!! That being said I am glad we had a look. Lots of local snack to try and...

Shops are nice. Fun to explore but many duplications, touristy. Too many scooters weaving among the people. Should be closed to just walking

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

This is a very long street with lots of food and shops. There is traditional Suzhou cuisine throughout the road and also lots of shops selling traditional Chinese costumes.
