Was really different and interesting. All types of different food to try and a really nice area. A lot of them either have photos or something in English so you know what you are choosing. Try a little of everything

It's not very cultural. It's a nice commercial area that's charming but I only walked through quickly and stopped for a quick snack. It's beside Wuhou Temple and by the Tibetan Quarter so if you're in the neighbourhood it's worth a quick stroll. It is very crowded so if you don't like tight spaces, maybe skip it altogether.

Jinli Street has the feel of old China and the architecture is very interesting. It's fun but very crowded. If you are adventurous there are some interesting things to eat from stalls there.

Admittedly from the moment you enter Jinli Street, you are well aware that you are in an tourist area. However, if you accept that and push through you'll see a group of grey hairs practicing sword form tai chi, walk in a temple garden, and be immersed in China. Plus if you are a little adventurous, the crab on a... More

A nice place to spend an hour wandering round at your own pace. It is busy and full of life, lots of little shops, places to eat and drink, it is quite touristy but fun with it.

Located in center of town, very convenient yet interesting for locals as well as tourists...A lot of souvenirs and food vendors; interesting but inexpensive. No entrance fee; it also has a hotel and traveling agency inside if you so needed. Many taxi available just outside the gate. I was there a few times couple of years ago, but it is... More

A nice street well preserved with plenty of shopping, nothing exceptional with the goods being sold. Street was OK as part of another trip but not worth a special trip

I'm always surprised about people who complain that something is too touristy. Isn't that the point of traveling? This area is filled with food stalls, restaurants, and arts and craft shops. Great place to grab a snack and look at all the handicrafts.
