Great place to go for dinner. More shopping similar to wide and narrow though the restaurants have more interaction with the street.

Lots of people, lots of food, nothing new. I expected a Muslim Market from Xi'an kind of place but nothing farther from the truth. If you are there see it. If you don't find what else to do go, but don't expect to much.

It was really interesting to walk around the street and shop and see the locals (several tourists from other parts of China, not so many westerners. My children were photographed several times by other people because I guess they don't get to see westerners often. It was funny. There are several little shops around and you can do some bargaining.... More

Mainly reconstructed area. but still incorporating some ancient buildings. This is predominantly a tourist destination. Some appropriately priced bars. a good snack street and plenty of shops selling everything from super exclusive designer furniture and accessories to total tat. Something for everyone

I took my college age daughters here for a morning and visited another afternoon with my husband. Not as crowded in the morning and not as HOT. Lots of "authentic" looking Chinese architecture and style, plenty of shops and snacks! Very convenient being nearby Wuhou Temple and the Tibetan district. Parking seemed problematic is that's important. Bring RMB as I... More

You find similar areas in most cities - 'ancient' streets developed to cater for tourists. However, Jinli is a good example with many interesting little shops, a nice environment that includes ponds and bridges and nice tea houses (and Starbucks) for a little respite from crowds and sun. If you are on a souvenir hunt or are interested in Chinese... More

We liked it there, atmosphere is nice, street is charming and lots of small places to get food for virtually nothing.

Jinli pedestrian street is a major touristic attraction in Chengdu. And a very beautiful one it is, although it's not really authentic. This place is just build for the tourists. The streetfood is not pecticularly cheap, but it gives a good idea of what the food in this area is like. The best time to visit is at night, because... More

This is one of the most talked about Pedestrian street in Chengdu and is a very popular place for both local and overseas tourists. We took a taxi here from our hotel. There are many food stalls here and the food price starts from a minimum of RMB8 onwards mostly. It was an interesting experience but as everywhere in China,... More

A definite place to visit when in Chengdu, with lots of food, some bars and habdicrafts. It is a right maze and much bigger than you think Tips.... - go early (it closes about 10pm) - leave before it closes to avoid a scrum for taxis from the 1000s there
