Zhangjiagang Restaurants

  • A Chinese approach to western food.

    The Water Paradise Cafe offers an adequate selection of western entrees. The atmosphere is pleasant and the restaurant features live piano in the evening. But it is not a "fine dining" experience. Nor is it a place you'd choose for a business lunch or dinner. But the food is good.The menu also includes Asian favorites, and the restaurant draws more...

  • Great Italian food and more!

    The Small Devil, known to most simply as "the Italian restaurant," has a very broad menu that includes steaks, seafood and a great cheeseburger as well as pizza and typcial Italian offerings. The restaurant is Italian owned and operated, and is a hub of expat activity (especially European and American expats) in ZJG. The Small Devil also features a...

  • It's difficult to find a cheaper meal!

    Little Muslim restaurants can be found in every part of Zhangjiagang. Most offer a broad menu, but none I've visited In ZJG offer bread like you'll find at Muslim restuarants in other cities. A person can get full for less than USD 1. This is where many locals eat. Even if you're not on a budget, it's certainly worth visiting a few of these...

Zhangjiagang Nightlife

  • Great variety show!

    Hong Mo Fang (Moulin Rouge) had its grand opening on August 1, 2007 and is a great addition to Zhangjiagang. The theatre hosts a fabulous variety show featuring talented singers, dancers, acrobats, comedians and a great house band. Laser lights, pyrotechnics and other effects round out the performance. The music is mostly Chinese pop as well as...

  • An expat hub!

    Perhaps the most comfortable and familiar place for expats in ZJG is Malones Cafe or Malones Bar. Often referred to as "the living room," Malones is a cozy, 2-storey pub located just west of the Walking Street (Bu Xing Jie). Jack, the owner, can be found at the bar most evenings, and the staff is very pleasant. Bar and seating are downstairs, pool...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As far as crowded Chinese cities go, Zhangjiagang is a great place for bike riding for fitness and transportation. As a model city, Zhangjiagang's streets are wide with defined bike lanes, many of which are separated from vehicle traffic by medians. Good bicycles can be had inexpensively (from about USD 20, more for a mountain bike) at any of the many bicycle shops along ChangAn Lu, or Da Run Fa (the RT Mart) shopping center. The city center is flat and compact, so a bike is an excellent means of transportation for shopping or sightseeing, and a great way to burn a few calories. As in every city in China people drive like lunatics, so caution is always a must.

    Don't wanna buy a bike? Taxis are readily available and inexpensive. You can go most anywhere in the city center for the equivalent of $1. Minimum fare in Zhangjiagang is 7 rmb (about $.88) compared with 11 rmb ($1.38) in Shanghai.

    The city also has a dependable bus system that links Zhangjiagang to numerous surrounding towns.

Zhangjiagang Shopping

  • If you're hunting for foreign foods....

    The Walking Street is home to 4 major department stores: No. 1 Peoples Department Store; Kelly Department Store; the Commerical Mansion; and the International Department Store. Of these stores, No. 1 Peoples is probably the smallest and doesn't have the selection the others do. It does, however, have a nice grocery on the top floor which features...

  • Not as large as RT Mart but....

    If it's Saturday afternoon and you don't want to face the crowds at RT Mart, Su Guo is a good alternative. Located on the west side of the Walking Street, Su Guo is something of a hyper-mart, but on a smaller scale than RT Mart. Like RT Mart, Su Guo carries a bit of everything, but the selection is not nearly as good as RT Mart. Prices, however,...

  • The closest thing to a hyper-mart.

    Da Run Fa (RT Mart) is about the closest thing ZJG has to a hyper-mart. RT Mart carries everything from digital cameras to fresh fruit, and offers the best selection in ZJG. RT Mart carries a little of everything. Air conditioners, sporting goods, electronics and groceries. RT Mart probably has ZJG's best selection of freshly cut, packaged meat...
