Because of the locale and the ambiance it is a must visit - but there is not much to see. I will say that most major Chinese cities seem to have an equivalent these days, and this is probably one of the better ones, but one doesn't need to spend much time here. 3 stars for the sights, but 5...

Jinli Street was highly recommended, but after visiting I felt it was incredibly over-hyped. Packed with tourists, it was a poor attempt at recreating Chinese 'culture'. The stalls and shops showcase some Chinese handicrafts, but it's overshadowed by being a complete tourist trap. It's a lot more expensive than elsewhere, and you get very little atmosphere. If you have time,... More

Jinli Street is a major tourist spot so it's usually crowded. However, it's interesting to see the old fashioned architecture and little food stalls. Kuanzai Alley (Wide and Narrow Alley) is very similar so you don't need to see both if you're short on time. As usual in Chengdu, very few people speak English so it helps to go with... More

The Jinli pedestrian area in Chengdu is best at night. Lots and of lots of lights in shimmering colors, and all the craftspersons are at work, making the genuine Chinese souvenirs you won’t find in the downtown area: silk scarves, wood carvings, paper cuts, wood chopsticks, painted eggshells and much more. The area in itself is ancient and now, among... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the buzz of Jinli Street. Is very much aimed at tourists, but still an interesting experience. Huge range of street food to be sampled some of which was impossible to discover what it was. Lovely atmosphere there. Went once during the day and again for an evening. The Sichuan Opera there is really worth a visit. Chinese Dinner... More

The title says it all. Some say Chengdu has their tastes of its own. Every city in China has their specialised flavour and Chengdu is towards the spicy and numb tastes. Try tgeir local food at Jin Li street, which is crowded with ppl. But pls try to leave before evening as it is very difficult to find a cab/taxi... More

We visited this street in the evening and during the day time. Both times was very nice there. A bit crowdy, but full od nice small shops, restaurant and bars. Must visit this street if you are in Chengdu.
