We've been there during Spring Festival and even when the city itself felt kind of deserted here you could find tons of people celebrating New Year. The street itself offers a lot of different food, souvenirs and crafted stuff - nice place to visit

Lots of food, souvenirs, and some interesting photo opportunities. Went in the morning so not a lot of people around, but imagine it would be different on nights and weekends. It is rebuilt and not an original historic shopping street so it has a slick, touristy feel to it and I can see how some would be disappointed.

A street built to look like an old town. Full of tourist shops and eating places. Worth spending an hour or two....just to get a "feel" of the place. Again at peak seasons and on holidays , its packed with chinese tourists. If you are rushed for time, this is a one stop point for souviners - but at a... More

Had many delicious snacks with my family here. We even watched some traditional performances here, including tea-pouring, tea-smacking and face-change!

I think just like many other places in china, this street is highly overrated. Just an average place to visit for 20-30 minutes. have some memory pics and stuff. Don't buy anything from there, Very expensive.

Lot's of nice shops to buy some souvenirs, food and even 'post office' can be found in here :) When I was here the only tourists were Chinese or Korean so I would not call it very 'touristy' in a classic Western meaning.

Tacky, fake, busy, touristy. No thanks! So uninspiring I'm struggling to make the 100 word limit here!

At first I thought it's some sort of commercial street like Shanghai Tian Zi Fang, but I was totally wrong as this place is amazingly fun, everything you can find it here was really unique and much of them are Sichuan speciality, it's worth to pay a visit!

It's a bit of a tourist trap with your usual tacky goods but it also has a few decent photo opportunities if you can create a bit of space in the crowds of Chinese tourists. It has a Starbucks and numerous little street food stalls and little market stall snacks, so worth going for that. The park it joins onto... More

The Jinli pedestrian area is an ancient renovated street that boasts its past glory traceable to BC era. It is best to walk through this street at night illuminated with typical chineses lontrin. Almost all tourists looked like chineese. Lots of genuine colorful souvenirs ,wooden carvings, are available in the streets. It is hard to bargain in this place without... More
