Way too crowded!!! Avoid... Typical tourist trap... Lost its original charm! If you do decide to go go early in the day! Can walk there along the river if you come from the city area

Chengdu has been famous for being the capital of the reign of Shu (蜀) during the the Three Kingdoms (AD 220–280) era. In Jinli you can get a glimpse of what the city used to be by then. Unfortunately, like many other tourist attractions in China, the place has been "colonised" by shops, selling quite expensive and not really high... More

Jinli street is about an hour away from the panda base. It is very popular seeing that there are a lot of tourists in the area. There were restaurants along the street. It was a nice experience to visit since chengdu is known for street foods. I had some rabbit while treading the street. Definitely a recommended place to visit.

We stumbled onto this place by complete accident but it was the best accident of Chengdu! The food was plentiful and the atmosphere was fantastic, there were more food stalls than you could possibly go to in one day and each has something unique. We tried a stick of Potato Tornados which are like a midlands potato scallop twirled around... More

Had a ball walking around here and sampling all the street food. Honestly, make the effort to have a look. The little stalls sell all manner of food, dumplings, skewers, pancakes....and so cheap. It was bustling and lively...and the kids in our group (blue eyed and blonde haired) were particularly popular with the crowds here. If this sort of thing... More

I really like the actually street, it looked clean and it was easy to walk on. I'm saying this because, ancient town streets mostly have cobblestones. There were many, many places you can try out food. We went into one of the many restaurants, I wouldn't do this again because prices were high for drinks and food was minimal. Best... More

I was in search of san da pao, a Szechuan snack named for the "pow pow pow" noise made when the 3 (san) balls are thrown against a metal cymbal. Touristy I know, but I wanted to see it being made and to taste it. Concierge said I'd find it on Jinli St. I had a few hours before catching... More

Old town with ultra commercialization (a bit crass at times) next to Wuhou Memorial Shrine. Good for just window-shopping and sampling local Szechuan snacks. Some nice traditional Chinese pictures to be taken too if you can get away from the massive crowds.
