I visited Jinli Street lots of times when I lived in Chengdu. It is a modern reconstruction of an old Chinese bustling street. So you can buy traditional street food, most of which it's best not to ask too much about, or you can pop into modern restaurants or even Starbucks. The small shops and cafe's are the best, particularly... More

As a foodie, it is really a great place to go. This 350 meters long street are lined with folk residences, teahouses, inns, wine bars and many specialties shops. The Face changing show and local snacks here impressed me indeed.

I loved exploring this ancient town walking along the stream that flow between the streets, and crossing at bridges and taking in the music, shops, scenery and culture all in one glorious spot. We were taken here before going to Panda Research Centre on our tour. We spend a good 2 hrs here and loved it !

Great place to find China souvenirs where you don't have to haggle on price! There is also an assortment of street food. If you are craving some western treats then there is a Starbucks and Dairy Queen!

If you've not yet seen one of those, then go, otherwise, just leave it. There's the same stuff as in any other tourist old streets in China, they sell exactly the same things, nothing special.

Well done up. Looks nice, lovely little restaurants. Spent about 1 hour there. Grabbed a coffee and walked around. Hopefully you'll get to see the man on the street cleaning people's ears!!!

This street is fun if you go on off hours/days when there aren't so many people packing it shoulder to shoulder. It can be quite a chore trying to move from shop to shop late night. The night time lighting is cool with streets lined with red lanterns and multicolored passageways. There are many different shops and restaurants to try... More

We walked the entire way through Jinli street to the top section which actually joins onto the grounds of the Wuhou Shrine. JInli street is jam packed with tourists, almost completely Chinese as not nearly as many Western tourist come to Chengdu. It was interesting, you can get your usual meat on a stick as well as the unusual rabbit... More

Jinli is a very nice pedestrian area, relaxed and not overcrowded by Chinese standards. Good atmosphere a lot of tasty street food, arts and craftsshops and of course some of the usual tourist traps where you only find cheap junk.

Gorgeous walk through a tourist area. Lots of street food, arts and crafts. Red lanterns glowing in the evening and beautiful Chinese arcitecture, not original but a wonderful original feel...a tourist must. Loads of visiting Chinese and Tibetan people in their native costume was a hihghlight for me...
