We were recommended to visit Jiezi other than the other old towns in the Chengdu area because this is viewed as one of the most authentic and best preserved and restored. When you enter via the tourist centre and ask directions to the ancient town...More

Visited here yesterday, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The site was established in the Ming Dynasty, but most of what you see today is much later. Doesn't spoil the experience though. Lots of touristy shops, snacks, restaurants and photo opportunities. Worth a visit

I have been to dozens of ancient towns and found this to be quite nice. Less crowded than the typical ancient town, and quite pleasant. Can easily spend an afternoon strolling around enjoying the scenery and wandering around. Be sure to try the local ye'er...More

Jiezi Ancient Town is your typical "ancient town." It is composed of shops, restaurants, tea houses, and so on. There isn't any traffic in the ancient town and it's near a shallow river so it's a good place to visit if you have children. The...More

Okay, I admit it, I don't like fake, reconstructed or otherwise carnival-like destinations. This is what Jiezi is. An arcade atmosphere with 2 cool bridges that made it worthwhile. If you find yourself in Dujiangyan with 2 hours to spare, go for it. But don't...More

Ancient "Old Town" Jiezi is a small town with a very rich and historic history. Located along the Silk Road, it is known as the home of the famous "Goard Poet". Due to the '08 earthquake, much of the city has been restored, but in...More

Very pretty place to stroll on a sunny -- or at least not rainy -- day. Lots of buildings and a bridge that look old (although I'm told that most are reconstructions). Several nice-looking inns, many restaurants, and many-many small shops. We had a very...More

Jiezi is a beautiful, very traditional town with an interesting main square and a lovely riverside walkway with tremendous views of two very different and impressive bridges. The town gets very busy with people from Chengdu at the weekends. There are huge numbers of eateries...More

This town is awesome. Make sure to visit and check out the local markets and food. The weekends tend to be busier and bring in the domestic tourists. It's very authentic and not commercialized at all. Keep in mind, no English. We went with a...More
