This was, years ago, the bar street of Suzhou. These days, due to government regulations and competing nightlife elsewhere, it’s quieter. It’s a long street south of Suzhou University running East-West across the old city. You’ll get a good sense of ‘old Suzhou’ in this...More

Very nice pedestrian street if you like to get run over by the constant stream of honking scooters. It took us about 10 min to cross the entire street. Not to be underestimated as it was in July.

This place is famous mostly for the Bars but if you have time try visit it during the day. It is one of the ancient streets of Suzhou with stone pathways and the canal. Very good opportunity to take pictures.

This is the center of the old city, and there are a lot of shops and restaurants, but it feels run down, and the streets are too crowded with taxis and e-bikes. The street is dirty and there are horrible smells coming from all directions....More
