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.

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.

It is very crowded when we went, though it impressed me on the display on goods sold inside the stalls, I felt tired after half an hours of walking. There are few alleys, really need some times to look and browse. of course , there are drinking & food places to sit & rest. Interesting enough.

You should not miss strolling the street. Even if you do not purchase any of the food from the stands, just looking at the shops, the tremendous number of people is a wonderful experience. Pure Chinese sensory overload.

This is right next to the Marquis Wu Shrine and consists of a number of alley like streets packed on all sides with traders of all descriptions. A great atmosphere and definitely somewhere to go and sample all the snacks if you are hungry!
