This was 'the' shopping street and has been pedestrianised for nearly 20 years and still looks modern. Mainly local shops, the silver shops are worth a look but you will not find the brands in the more modern shopping malls that are everywhere now. There...More

A crowded area, like Taiwan Xi Men Ding. Long queue whenever there is retail selling food or snack. Few shops selling silver handmade jewelry, fashion, shoes. Not really interesting to foreign visitors.

GuanQian Jie is the heart of shopping in Suzhou. As soon as I got there today, I felt a crazy positive energy in the street and it was awesome. The main drag is full of the wonders and wackiness of any Main Street - with...More

I am probably being over critical as I visit many cites all over the world but to be honest, there is nothing special about this street. It is no different to any other shopping street and very busy. If you like busy shopping with thousands...More
