Pingjiang Road, Suzhou

(4.2/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Explore Pingjiang Road, which has been the city's center of cultural life for 800 years since the Song Dynasty. The road stretches for 1,606 m (5270 ft) parallel to the Pingjiang River and contains series of ancient sophisticated houses designed with characteristic black tiles and white walls. As you take a stroll along the historic road, visit artsy bookshops, museums, opera theaters, and especially teahouses, where locals perform Suzhou Pingtan--a form of Chinese musical narrative. You can also go on a boat ride down the Grand Canal, where traditionally dressed boaters sing their native songs. Watch for traffic, as scooters regularly whiz by close to sidewalks. Use our Suzhou trip itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Pingjiang Road and other attractions in Suzhou.

  • Visited the 60's and my mother's apartment. Tourism staff is a spur road, night and morning walk is best. In the nice atmosphere of the city flanked by shops (China clothes shop and restaurant system often), so hanging out walking the streets. The pedestrian street just think we ought to be careful because there are street bike on the narrow road is not so. I would also like to visit if you happen to come.

  • 10 years Buri Shanghai trip, this doubles as the first Chinese bullet train ride, go on a day trip to Suzhou, mountains have been around Qiantang City (shantangie) and past River Road (pinnjannruu). Phase is the nearest underground station in five minutes on foot from the station and out to the main street in the right direction and walk into historic signs first, with river front, where River Road and soon found. Mountain first visit posh looks like fun compared to Qiantang City (shantangie), the main tourist area along River Street-only Strip is, but here are a bit more sophisticated stores and tourists from an outright gift Japan stores or specialty food and beverage outlets rather than in Suzhou youth dear came to was was impressed and are dotted with boutique-style shops and fashionable cafes. What Sahara as tourism resources attract tourists from home and abroad, establish a city of canals and storage buildings just "koedo" up for sale and Tochigi like arranged in the Chinese-style atmosphere. If you try to enjoy the scenery and the atmosphere, and are exploring the views of local people facing River paved trail is quite long but the various stores and tourists one life Buri and imperceptibly 1 km or so lightly in the back will become increasingly, 1-2 hours or so is may be insignificant at all. This time for the taking of the photo exhibition works of mountain would have taken cuts went like Qiantang City (shantangie), but rather could go in. To be honest, Nice.

  • 很窄的一条路,路的一边是水,给人的感觉就是小桥流水人家。基本上现在比较商业化了,小吃比较多,也有比较特色的苏州风味小吃,苏绣之类的,周末人很多,从北往南走一直可以走到干将路~  more »
