Really a tourist spot and I wish there were no Starbucks for the foreigners to have a coffee when you can have good tea. On the back side there were a number of take out food dishes that I wanted to try. I saw a pineapple rice dish that looked good. Lots of young Chinese and tourists wandering about. Reminded... More

I love the Jinli ancient street. Sure, it is touristy and the higher prices reflect that but there are some genuine things that are part of Chinese culture that you can't find elsewhere, such as the sugar animal art, and some of the snack foods. I think this is an awesome place to go for a walk with a significant... More

This was a nice shopping street with a wide range of things to look at, but it was very hard to see in some of the small shops since it was so crowded. There did seem to be a lot more of the local things for sale like paper cutting, painted eggs and candy art, so it was fun to... More

This street is very crowded and fixed up to be a tourist attraction. The shops are an interesting mixture of local art such as paper cutting, carving, poured sugar syrup candy art, shadow puppets, and some Tibetan Buddhist items. Recommended for a short walk through and some pictures but leave before the crowds get to you!

This street is the Chinese equivalent of our American historical streets or villages. Chinese students, families and locals come here to walk around and enjoy a few inexpensive hours. Lots of shops of course, selling everything from cheap 2 or 3 yuan souvenirs and snacks to very expensive art and silk. My tip is to walk through, enjoy the koi... More

Jinli is next to Wuhou Temple(Masquis Shrine), with a profoune culture background. Many souvenirs come from that period of history. Most Chinese people understand these. Many local snacks and dim sum are available at a food steer and offered tourists with a very small amount. It is nice and economical way to try many food. Being a local i have... More

There is a photo on one of the walls that shows the place in 1980's and to compare with what is there now is a testament to making the visitors experience the real older times. Great shopping and restaurants.

A very busy street (or really streets), which is well worth a visit. Lots of souvenir shops - panda anyone? There are also lots of street food stalls which are very popular and cheap. Also plenty of bars and restaurants. The sichuan nuts were delicious.

It was very crowded and I did no find it to be pleasant at all. I visited during a national holiday, which is not the time to go.
