The Suzhou creek (or Wusong river) is now much cleaner than it used to be. Water is clearer and does not smell anymore.

The walkways around it have been improved. It offers a good place for running, walking and cycling. During evenings it is also more peaceful. Lot of locals are also angling here (nights especially as it may be forbidden to fish here).

Right now, it's not even an average river walk. It's actually quite gross with the dusty construction chugging away in the middle of summer, and so many of the older buildings running by the road are boarded up for demolition. Plenty of homeless, too.

BUT!

There is potential. There are a few small sections where you can walk closer to the water, and 2 small parks (really small though) for respite. Also a handful of old warehouses have been turned into hotels and galleries, keeping their evocative facades.

Give it a year or 2 and I'm sure those crafty Chinese will sort it out.

The Suzhou River flows into the Huangbo River -- the main river passing through Shanghai. Nice walkways along the river. Walk west to see the wonderful old Post Office building!

Excellent private customized day tour with Portia. Thorough conversation on China's history and culture from past and present day during our comfortable one hour ride from Shanghai. We were able to choose Master of the Nets Garden and enjoyed eating with chopsticks while Portia introduced us to Chinese specialty foods such as noodles and dumplings .
Overall a memorable experience which we will not forget!

Did not realize how lovely it is to have a stroll by the Suzhou Creek until accidentally ended by its river bank. Cherry blossoms and magnolias in full bloom. Locals chilling out by the banks in all sorts of activities from dancing, chatting, exercising to fishing. Lots of heritage buildings nearby and don't be afraid to explore the alleys to get a boost on history.

Ive been there one time and it will in my memory. With my lovely friends. The weather was awsome as well. During walking on bridge you could feel the breeza which touchs your face and move your hair. The coffee shop near the market was good as well.with its nice music.

We had a very relaxing 2km stroll along the river front to this bridge then crossed the river to a very nice restaurant on the main road.

Take the cruise at night lasts about 50 minutes but well worth it. Area is beautiful during the day but really pops at night. One of the highlights for us.

Suzhou was a nice area in Shanghai to visit. We took a 1/2 hour boat ride along the canal in a "gondola like" boat and during the ride the "gondoleer" sang a lovely little
Chinese song for us. At the end of the ride we went ashore and shopped with the locals and their families in the walkway of shops on a lovely Sunday afternoon. If you have the time and have a few hours to spare take advantage of this opportunity. It is very relaxing and a lot of fun.
