This is a recreated old shopping street but seemed very well done with quaint alleyways and quality shops. Interesting!

If you enjoy shopping in the local culture this is a must do in Chengdu... The street (alley) winds its way through a small enclave of old China structures and along side the Jinsha Museum... It crowded and filled with the smells of local cooking --- many trinkets to be had for the savy negotiator...

Nice area for dining, nightlife or just having a walk. Old houses and lanes, nicely renovated, but still keeping some of it's old charm. Looks less artificial than for example Xintiandi in Shanghai. Many restaurants with al fresco dining. English can be a problem in some restaurants, but it's possible to find some good places. Easy to grab a taxi... More

Food. Drink. Souvenirs. A beautiful nature park with sculptured gardens. Though crowded, this is a must experience for anyone visiting Chengdu. There is a little of everything here and bargaining is a must. It is a bit kitchy but aside from that, just a great place to watch the locals out for the day.

Not really a big fan of places like this, it's kinda like another Houhai but in Chengdu. However if you have spare time in Chengdu and don't mind or even are into being in crowds and looking at fake ancient Chinese style stuff, check it out. They have snacks, coffee, bars, BBQ, small fun stuff, red lanterns... not too bad... More

Well worth a half day visit. Plenty of shops selling artisan products and street food. If it fits on a stick, they cook it and sell it here. A great opportunity to appreciate Chengdu culture first hand.

This is a tourist trap but none the less a very pleasant one. It does get crowded by day and by night but go with the flow stroll at your own pace and the crowds won't bother you. Its a good opportunity to do some souvenir shopping be prepared to haggle and you can get some bargains. Look out for... More

A great place to start or end your trip, you can get a good idea about some of the culture and traditional art of China in this place. Very easy to purchase souvenirs as it has so much of it. Best to visit it at night when the place stands out because of the lamps that shine along the street... More

It looks like a movie set during a break between scenes with lots of people rushing to grab a Mac and a cup of Starbucks. Completely soulless, been unable to appreciate it.
