Old town tourist site. Hustle and bustle

Next to the Wuhou temple, Jinli street is the complete opposite to the peace, quiet and tranquility of the temple. It is a bustling place. You can find lots of traditional... read more

There were many things you can try,local,spicy street food. Not the tourist eat there even the local also like eating there,that is the best thing you need to do if the local people also do it. Night view is nice with glim. Worth to see.

If you're into commercialized tourist traps, then this is the place for you. The stores are much more on the high end, and while the the architecture of the rebuilt street is nice, there are many more places that you could go in your time. If you do find yourself on this street, look for the coffee shops behind the... More

Next to the Wuhou temple, Jinli street is the complete opposite to the peace, quiet and tranquility of the temple. It is a bustling place. You can find lots of traditional foods and souvenirs here. It has a different feel at night with some of the restaurants being very good. Dont expect any bargains. Its worth a visit unless you... More

A nice, bigger than expected, place to pick up a few souvenirs. They are a little expensive, but nothing that will break the bank and tend to be of fairly good quality. Snack street is okay, but if you have time try some slightly more authentic (and cheap!) street food up by the north train market. Unfortunately the government is... More

I went there during the Spring Festival Period. Although it is crowded and packed with people, it is still a good place to visit and experience the majority local food and snacks located in this place! Besides there other food establishments which you can try if the food street is not your type. Tips : Do go there with empty... More

Granted crowded is part and parcel of being in China. Lots of neat shops to look in and many foods to try.

We've been there during Spring Festival and even when the city itself felt kind of deserted here you could find tons of people celebrating New Year. The street itself offers a lot of different food, souvenirs and crafted stuff - nice place to visit

Lots of food, souvenirs, and some interesting photo opportunities. Went in the morning so not a lot of people around, but imagine it would be different on nights and weekends. It is rebuilt and not an original historic shopping street so it has a slick, touristy feel to it and I can see how some would be disappointed.

A street built to look like an old town. Full of tourist shops and eating places. Worth spending an hour or two....just to get a "feel" of the place. Again at peak seasons and on holidays , its packed with chinese tourists. If you are rushed for time, this is a one stop point for souviners - but at a... More

Had many delicious snacks with my family here. We even watched some traditional performances here, including tea-pouring, tea-smacking and face-change!
