Came during the Labor Day holidays. Started in early afternoon and the crowd was bearable. People continued to stream in and by late afternoon, the place was packed.

Interesting place with shops lined up along the canal. There are plenty of food and beverage options. Souvenirs shops are also in abundance.

For entertainment, there are tea houses with talk show in local language. There are quaint alleys that are good for photo ops.

Certainly worth a visit when you visit Suzhou.

Narrow streets, local snacks, traditional souvenirs and picturesque canals. Take the time to look into the past, there was an old man who would personalise a silk fan for you by doing a painting and incorporating your name in both the Roman and Chinese alphabets. The snacks are all finger food with the sweet and savoury signature of Suzhou. Take a short trip on the canal or simply mooch. Fascinating history right before your eyes.

Lots of shops, beautiful traditional buildings and nice street art. They even had singing boat operators. If you're looking for good food in this area try Finland Home Cafe.

Pingjiang Road, an old traditional commercial street. visit here is a necessary link when you are in Suzhou. Here retain the architectural style of ancient times. you can see all kinds shops over here, Suzhou traditional snakes and toys, old collections, traditional restaurants, hotels and so on. I would stronglty suggest traveller to book an hotel in the alley, lay down your gears, head out and enjoy the prosperous old Suzhou. You will found the fashion of the old Suzhou.

We came here in the late afternoon/ early evening before they closed the road. Nice walk beside a small canal. Still plenty of people in the area. Lots of old buildings converted to tea houses and shops selling souvenirs, food, snacks, coffee etc. You get a feel of the old Suzhou and the laid back atmosphere.

Wonderful street to walk down to get a feel of old Suzhou. Lots of tea shops, restaurants, coffee shops, and souvenirs shops to browse. Great place to people watch as lots of locals love to wear traditional Han clothing while walking around the street

I like walking pedestrian streets and am predisposed to like this one. Lots of old chinese buildings and canal perspectives.

I really enjoyed a pork puff I found there. Also the small Dream of Taoyuan restaurant (pork trotters, small bowl noodles, wanton soup, sweet bean curd) - managed to get a seat mid afternoon (outside of meal hours).

We visited this area the day after a trip to Tongli and found it to be a much easier location for visitors to access. A few minutes walk from a metro station and well signposted.
Only Negative was the number of bikes and scooters in the pedestrian area.
