A marketplace was established, stretching from Moye Road to Donghuan Road. This ancient street, 590 meters long and just 5 meters wide, has been perfectly preserved. You may have a chance to see vendors peddling their commodities along the interlaced alleys in this bustling area. The market is a hidden gem for anyone looking to experience local food culture.

Continue your tour to Pingjiang Historic Street. For an authentic taste of city life in old Suzhou, a stroll down Pingjiang Lu's lanes is a great way to get acquainted with the local vibe. Quiet, leafy and slow-paced, the street is lined with old Chinese houses as well as restaurants and teahouses serving traditional food and drink, upscale cafés catering to the historical chic crowd, as well as a few hostels. In addition, the Pingtang Museum and Kunqu Opera Museum and Schoolare along the road.
