Lots of street vendors to check out. A bit busy on a Sunday. A long walk from Humble Administrators Garden / Lion Forest Garden so suggest hiring a tuktuk (about ¥15). You can walk up Shantang Street to Tiger Hill Scenic Area.

Just ask taxis to take you there. Getting around suzhou is very easy. You get get a what up suzhou magazine and it has a map in it also
