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.

If you wish to see "Chinese" styled buildings and experience as much street food as possible while shopping for overpriced artisanal gifts for friends back home, then this is the place to be. If not, then I don't know where else you should go because there isn't a whole lot to see in this city. Kuanzhai xiangzi is a smaller... More

From the illuminated red lanterns to the old stone streets & interesting shops around every corner, you cannot miss this great little walk around Jin Li Street. Park underground and come up near the lake. Take the path into the gates and enjoy!

The street is 350 meter long with a loop at one end. There is a dinner/show restaurant by the loop end. Here one can buy a rabbit head to chew on. Somehow the image of a beauty chewing on a rabbit head seems diabolically opposite. People who had experienced it said it has lots of flavor. There are other street... More

If some place in Chengdu is "touristic", then its Jinli-Street! You can shop, eat and dring, all in "chinese" atmosphere. I would suggest You first visit the adjacent ´Wuhouci-Temple´ and get to Jinli-Street as soon as it gets dark, as the lights make it really very nice to walk around.

Jinli street is set in a way how I presume ancient Chinese markets would have been, with a more modern twist. There many restaurants and bars within the streets as well as plenty of food stalls, gift stalls and Chinese figures. It can be a bit pricey for some stuff so try and haggle if they allow it. If not,... More

It was fun enough for a couple of hours and an indication to Western eyes of how exotic the old East must have looked. Don't be confused though - this is a rebuild and the Starbucks does look incredibly out of place here! Enjoy browsing and checking out some of the traditional crafts, stop for some street food tea and... More

This is a rebuilt market area, well done with a good selection of items for sale. It's very crowded, so watch your wallet!

Yet another modern representation of an old street; surely it would have been better not to sacrifice heritage to the bulldozer of modernisation. However, Jin Li street isn't badly done. It's heaving with people and 'street food' outlets; a good place to go to sample local tastes and have a mutual slurp fest with the locals. The recommended length of... More
