Shanghai China Tourist Information and Travel Guide
The Suzhou Creek in Shanghai China is a 125 km river that flows through Shanghai and empties into the Huangpu River north of the Bund.
During the colonial period, the creek separated the British Concession (southern bank) from the American Concession (northern bank).
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.
