Suzhou Creek was an important trade route for much of China's history. Many of the old factories and warehouses that once lined the creek have now been transformed into art galleries.

The area along the creek has evolved into Shanghai's neighborhood for artists. 

The Suzhou Creek is accessible from the north end of the Bund.
