This is a typical "old made new to look old" street packed with tourist shops. If you are new to China, it is definitely worth a visit. If you have been around, it is not better than other, similar streets in other Chinese cities. Packed with Chinese tourists, and more packed at night. Guard yourself from pickpockets. The tourist shops... More

Jinli is a must when visiting Chengdu. Go at night to see the whole place in lights, but be prepared for the amount of people. Junli has loads of old-style Chinese markets and street food and it's a nice place to walk around in the evening looking around.

Need to know points about Jinli St in order of importance: 1) pickpockets are prevalent. Bring only what you need and guard it. 2) crowded, touristy, decent chance of being pickpocketed, but totally worth it. Neat architecture, unique handicraft, cool little tea shops, diverse street food (none to my personal liking, but very popular, and wife liked several things.) 3)... More

It is pretty obvious that this place has been set up as a tourist trap but it is still worthwhile to experience. Don't expect any bargain souvenirs but there are plenty of weird and wonderful foods to check out. Since we are in Sichuan, you can expect most foods to be pretty spicy. And since we are in China, be... More

Chinese do not believe in queing. If you want to be served you need to be agressive otherwise everyone cuts in front of you. Try all the street food. Very good. Lots of nice photo ops. Go early for the opera shows.

Jinli Street should be on everyone's itinerary for Chengdu. The traditional architecture is very picturesque and it's a great place for people watching. It can be very crowded on weekends, so if you can't handle the crush, this may not be the place for you. The food stalls are phenomenal. And the menus are translated into English. Just point to...

Really good spot for a stroll. Not beautiful - lively. Fun. Like a prearranged snapshot of quirkiness. Ducks heads to eat, but also more Western-friendly food and drink in an old world environment.

Yes, its crowded and touristy, but this place is actually quite beautiful with all of its lights, performers, and craftsmen at night. We went on a rare, cool summer night. None of us actually bought any souvenirs here but we very much enjoyed looking at all of the stalls and shops and taking in the experience. There are small bodies... More

If this is your n'th trip to a tourist shopping street in your n'th city in China, in a hurry, you might breeze by unimpressed. The broad and narrow alleys have bigger and nicer places. But, if you want to take another point of view, its a lot more exotic than a county fair, more places to eat and have... More

If you want to know the culture, local food and people better, this alley must be visited. If you are interested in a modern shopping center, that is the wrong place. Great place!
