Easily accessed by metro. The streets by the canal are very narrow and congested with tourists. Many shops selling snacks, food, drinks, clothes and souvenirs. If you like peace and quiet, you may not enjoy jostling with the crowd here. We came during the May day holidays. Talk about timing! Came in late afternoon. You can take a boat ride on the canal.

Just like half of Suzhou, no matter if resident or tourist that has just arrived, no foreigners can enter, only Chinese nationals. No explanation offered other than you need an appointment. When you try to make an appointment they tell you foreigners cannot make appointment, even with passport and proof of where you've been recently.

Virus causing people left and right to loose what little sense they may have had.

It's cool to see the rivers and canals, but it's a bit commercialized and has quite a bit of construction. Isn't the most polished tourist street but I only spent about a half hour to an hour here. Small shops and food places, and you can get out easy via subway. Some gardens are walkable nearby as well - I would plan this as just one quick stop for your day tour in Suzhou.

Very commercialised with shops selling drinks, snacks, clothes and restaurants. Very surprising crowded even in colder December time. I can not imagine the summer. This is not for these ones loving peaceful relax outside. History in not priority here even it costs big effort and lives to build it up more than thousand year ago

A very long and very well conserved old street. As well maintained street, this is now a commercial location and sell all sorts of things like alcohol, food, clothes, souvenirs, etc. the street is really long and connects into a quiet street which we did not venture as it was getting dark. Lots of photo opportunities and things to browse. Worth at least half a day.
