Suzhou Shopping: 18 reviews and 25 photos

  Guan Qian Street
by yipsufen

This is the busiest street in Suzhou, dotted with old & reputable merchants & restaurants.

Eg: Chaizijai Shop famous for its assortment of candies, Lugaojian Shop renowned for its marinated duck & pork, etc. This street has been given a facelift to become wider & modern thus it had lost some of its traditional appeal.

Established since 1870, this is the trademark for Suzhou candies.

What to buy: It has more than four hundreds variety of products categorised into candies, roasted seeds, preserved fruits, biscuits & salted range.

You may consider to buy some of its favourite candies / cakes like dumpling candies, crispy candies, etc.

What to pay: Most of the food stuff here are sold according to weight in gramms. Remember 1 kati is equivalent to 500g and not 600g.
