from 2016, Yangzhou offers travel bicycles to rent, just scan the QR code if you have Alipay, first hour is free, one hour for 1 RMB, tops 20RMB per day.
There're several spots offering this service near Dongguan Gudu, very convenient to tour around the city by bike.
And it's near the Dongguan Street with former residence of Jiang Zemin (former chairman of China) and Zhu Ziqing (writer).

The overall place is beautiful and it's a great place for shopping. So many shops selling variety of products and souveniers .. from tea, little knick knacks, snacks to ocarina, ukulele. It's a must-go if you are visiting Yangzhou. I would definitely visit this place if I go to Yangzhou again in future!

One of the top 10 ancient streets in China according to the information at the entrance. Worth a look some old buildings and some nice gardens. Very commercialised now with many tourist shops and I wonder if the ancients had to continually dodge motor scoters? Didn't see many other western tourists, seems to be visited by locals and other Chinese. Good coffee at the Coffee house. Yangzhou is a friendly city but appears to be off the beaten track.

Depending on the time of year you go, this street can be very crowded. However, if you go past the main section and in neighboring areas you will discover little gems. It is easy enough to find methods of avoiding the masses of people. Plenty of historic sites peppered along as well, so it's worth a visit despite not being as famous as counterparts in other cities but just as fantastic. If you don't like crowds try to go during low season e.g cold weather. However, in China crowds are a given so I'd suggest to just find alleys or side streets that are less crowded.

It is a ancient wharf of the famous Grand Canal. I like its night view. It is so peaceful to walk along the Yangzhou city via this Grand Canal. At this spot, you can start another must to visit Dongguan Ancient Street. Lots of food and shopping awaiting for you.

Good for a leisure walk along the old jetty point, full of history. Quite beautiful at night with all the lighting.

Dongguan Historic Walking Street promotes itself as one of the 10 best historic walking streets in China, and this does not seem a completely outlandish claim. With its flagstone streets, rows of 100 year old Qing Dynasty shops and its reconstruction of the Sung Dynasty city wall, it offers an attractive and engaging escape from the concrete drabness of so much of modern Jiansgu. You should definitely come here- perhaps to try Yangzhou noodles or fried rice- if you are in town. It is easy to spend a pleasant hour or two here, looking in souvenir shops, eating local delicacies and perhaps visiting the Ge Garden, a famous bamboo garden located in the district.

If you have been a long time in China, you will not be dazzled by this place. It is not as good as the old streets in Tunxi, Anhui or Suzhou, Jiangsu, but it is much better than the ubiquitous pre-fabricated 'old' streets you find in some modern Chinese cities.
