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.

I enjoyed the walk. As you exit the humble administrator garden you turn into this street. Some good food places, coffee shops and stores. Take the 40 minute canal ride at RMB150 per boat. Gives you a taste of life here. Stop at ancient ape coffee shop to cool down and enjoy the ambience.

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.
