Shantang Street is an ancient riverside pedestrian road in Suzhou. It begins at Changmen Gate to the west and follows the Shantang River to the scenic Tiger Hill.  It is about 2.2 miles, which is seven li, hence the name ‘Seven-Li Shantang’.  The Shantung has been a busy transport and commercial hub for over a thousand years.  There are abundant snacks and souvenirs for sale in the many shops; you can ride a boat on the water for a different view.
