Compared to other places in Suzhou, this place is relatively not as beautiful. There are a couple of things to do, like talking to he locals.

The Grand Canal is used by Suzhou people to transport people or things. Some tourist is interested to ride the boat and can see around Suzhou.

This is nowhere near as pretty a trip as i.e. the Li River at Guilin, but it is still a pretty cool way to see the life along the river and feels kind of like a look-behind-the-scenes of how Suzhou works. Most of the boats have a toilet and simple services like (expensive) coffee and cold drinks. You can take this tour to Tongli Water Village and use it as a means of transportation between the two.
