“Amazing”

Guan Qian Shopping Street
Reviewed May 12, 2013

I lived here for 3 months. these are the consolidated points:
1) You will never starve (overeat most likely) - there are food places every where !!
2) Shopping needs - offers are always on, do keep a lookout for huge discounts though because theyre normally priced high and discounted.
if shopping for tourist-y goods, look around first (normally the farther the shop is from the crowd, the cheaper - i got scammed once, bought a dress for 120 only to found out that it costs a mere 30 in another) and ASK FOR DISCOUNTS)
3) it is relatively 'dirty' but just get used to it, it is due to the crowds and not the cleaners. these cleaners wash the pavements every other day in the morning and are constantly emptying the bins.
4) Go to Song He Lou/De Yue Lou. good food but really bad and impatient service staff.
5) go to the small goods wholesale centre, worth it. need to get down on bargaining though.
6) Try Amazon Intl Buffet. do it on a weekday lunch, its cheaper and less crowded = easier to get a table.
7) HAVE FUN.

This is like any other shopping area in China. A walking street with a crap load of stores, many repeating at every corner. If you can here to shop in international stores that you can find anywhere on earth, you can to the right place.

If you are missing to see crowds in China - go to Guanqian Jie. It is the commercial walking street of Suzhou with thousands of stores. you can buy almost everything here - clothes, souvenirs, fake goods etc.

There are many shops here, you can choose from cheap fake goods to branded high end one.

So many people shops here on weekend. You can enjoy either shopping or foods and scenery
