Pingjiang Lu

Top choice in Suzhou

On the eastern side of the city, this canalside road has whitewashed local houses sitting comfortably side by side with teahouses and trendy cafes selling overpriced beverages. Duck down some of the side streets that jut out from the main path for a glimpse at local life. It's a lovely place for a stroll, particularly in the early morning or on weekday evenings.
