It is like going back in time in some areas. Some of the house look like they did when they were first built.

This shopping area has many shops, museums,restaurants and tea rooms. I like this area the best for finding chinese junks and a quick tour of traditional gardens. The trees planted on the streets dont have bark and ade very unusual

I have been in Suzhou for about 40 times since last 10 years. Everytime I visited down town I found good food, very amazing views on the streets and channels, it's also a nice place for looking for gifts, e.g. tea!
I strongly recommend to visit Suzhou old town only if the sun shines, rain can destroy first Impression.

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.

shiquan street in the old part of suzhou is nice for shopping on day time although many shops are totally overprized.
there is a good choice of clothes for man as well as for women.
there is also a great choice of restaurants and bars.
many of this bars are so called "girlie bars" so guess what you can expect there!
most of the bars there stay open till late and offer good variety of alcoholic beverage to affordable prices. the street itself is a bit worn out and dirty but still OK to go to.
if you travel there as a couple or family check the bar before you enter....you might be disappointed because some of them are very dodgy!!!
