Most reviewers have focused on the boat rides which are possible on the Suzhou River (sometimes known as Suzhou Creek). But it is just as feasible to go for a promenade along the banks of the river, as there is usually some kind of footpath, walkway or at least road following its course. The most interesting phase is down near the Bund end, where tehre are many fine concession-port-era buildings to enjoy, but we have walked a fw kilometres upriver and there is always soemthing to see. Amidst the modern apartment blocks are some century-old godowns, factories, flour mills and other early industrial structures, some of them with an attractively old world look. You can also see the willows, cherry blossom and other favorite Chinese shrubs, all added in an attempt to beautify the inner city.
