My girlfriend is from Sichuan, so I am in and out of Chengdu all the time and have visited this place on multiple occasions. It's always an interesting time - during the day, you can see more of the trees, flowers, and appreciate the details of the architecture and street....... .....but night is when this street truly comes alive. There... More

This place is quite pretty, but also really overcrowded at some times. Unless you can go there on a week day, I'd recommend to skip it. You can find some very local street food there (which also means very spicy). The quality is really good, but the price is much higher than in random streets around Chengdu, there's also not... More

Jinli Pedestrian Street contained some very unusual and interesting vendors selling many locally made products and local specialties. We enjoyed shopping and watching the people to see what they had purchased! However, the street was just swarming with people. I live in China so I'm used to people, but this reminded me of the Chinese New Year Flower Streets in... More

I lived in Chengdu for a while in 2013 and having visited Jinli Street a few times I can definitely recommend it. Maybe there are a lot of these new but made to look old streets in China, but it's still a pleasant place to have a walk. There's a lot of stalls to buy street snacks and the whole... More

This was part of the tour, and is called "broken alley", chock-full of people and a person-powered cab, remniscent of what had existed before redevelopment. It is now a completely commercial zone, capped off with, wait, you know it, a STARBUCKS! No complaint from me about that, though, because I have stock in that fine company. Their biggest selling point,... More

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
