We stayed in an AirB&B located just off PingJiang street so that we could experience it during the morning hours as well as the more crowded evening/night time. Lovely place to take a walk along the canal as well as make side-trips to the other alleys and canals to explore. During the mid-day hours, it can be quite hot walking under a blazing sun, so best to avoid that time.

Historic district with lively neighborhood full of shops and snack kiosks and restaurants.
Come by if you want to enjoy a moment of local leisure life.

This street is filled with shops and street food , what you have to try is the stinky tofu but do make sure you go for the darker ones are they do taste better . Another thing to dry the the hot drinks they have and the haw berries covered in sugar , but do get the ones behind the counter because it could be ones that just been gathering dusts for a while . While I’m at it be careful while eating the dirty bun because it gets everywhere and I mean everywhere

Fascinating and tacky, charming and kitsch kaleidoscope of food, fashion, souvenirs, art and more. Of course it's designed to part you from your money but that is a willing separation because of the goods on offer, the sophistication of the window displays and the shop interiors.
As a bonus it runs parallel with a canal including regular bridges and historic buildings.
Depends on your walking speed and shopping habits but it would take between 1 and 3 hours to traverse.
Fortunately cars are banned but e bikes battle thru the walkers constantly beeping and are a dammed annoyance especially the kamikaze food delivery guys with the kangaroo logo on the food box.. It seems that many of the bike owners live down the alleys so they can't be stopped.
The Cat Cafe was a highlight.
So surrender to Alice in recreated old Suzhou-land
