from 2016, Yangzhou offers travel bicycles to rent, just scan the QR code if you have Alipay, first hour is free, one hour for 1 RMB, tops 20RMB per day. There're several spots offering this service near Dongguan Gudu, very convenient to tour around the city by bike. And it's near the Dongguan Street with former residence of Jiang Zemin... More

I think that it was pleasant to pass by this monument, but frankly speaking, it doesn't have any particularity.

The overall place is beautiful and it's a great place for shopping. So many shops selling variety of products and souveniers .. from tea, little knick knacks, snacks to ocarina, ukulele. It's a must-go if you are visiting Yangzhou. I would definitely visit this place if I go to Yangzhou again in future!

It is a ancient wharf of the famous Grand Canal. I like its night view. It is so peaceful to walk along the Yangzhou city via this Grand Canal. At this spot, you can start another must to visit Dongguan Ancient Street. Lots of food and shopping awaiting for you.

Good for a leisure walk along the old jetty point, full of history. Quite beautiful at night with all the lighting.

Dongguan Historic Walking Street promotes itself as one of the 10 best historic walking streets in China, and this does not seem a completely outlandish claim. With its flagstone streets, rows of 100 year old Qing Dynasty shops and its reconstruction of the Sung Dynasty city wall, it offers an attractive and engaging escape from the concrete drabness of so...

This was an ancient wharf of the Grand Canal which is world heritage . The Dongguan Street is next to it. I visited there with my family last week. It seems more interesting at night. Traditional houses, nice view, many shops, even the noise caused by the wok in some restaurant sounds great. They are restaurants, but they are more... More

One of the top 10 ancient streets in China according to the information at the entrance. Worth a look some old buildings and some nice gardens. Very commercialised now with many tourist shops and I wonder if the ancients had to continually dodge motor scoters? Didn't see many other western tourists, seems to be visited by locals and other Chinese.... More

Nice scenic view at night when all the lights light up along the river bank. A lot of people went for a jog, and exercise around that a area from morning till night.
