I could not see a special thing in the street… the stores are selling similar products…. Ordinary market.
The only thing which was worth was to buy a piece of art from a good Chinese artist working with egg shelves and painting nice portraits… you find him on the center area of the street!

This is a lovely "ancient" shopping street located right next to the Wuhou Ci (Wu Hou Shrine Temple of Marquis) where many ancient building structures, historical shop/tea houses along the tiny walklanes and bridges, where you will find like walking into the memory lane of ancient China, though a little touristy.

There are many eateries, restaurants and food booths here, with local and international cusines and you will be spoiled for choices, not to mention, many shops selling souvenirs and local delicacies, arts and handicrafts etc. There's also an open air teahouse where you can enjoy live singing performances (2pm-8pm) while having your drinks under the trees and clear blue sky.

If you come in the evening, that will be perfect as the area wil be lit with many beautiful red lanterns along the walklanes and bridges. It's so nice.

Day and night, this street and its side streets, is the most populated by locals and sightseers. The area is home to a half kilometre length of shops and eateries. A lot of unique items are offered for sale, and some street foods that you may have not seen before.

Similar to Kuanzhai Alley, but more crowded and a little stinkier. It is right next to Wuhouci shrine and it is a bit confusing in terms of entrance and exit. There is no inside passage between one and the other, one would have to exit Jinli Street and enter Wuhouci separately.

This place is like a beer garden and a Bazaar combined together. There are plenty of souvenir shops and food eateries.

If you would like to experience the local culture and this is the place to visit. There is however a lot of similarity as Kwanzhai alley.

There are tea houses and eating places offering Sichuan opera. There are at least a few vendors that offer ear cleaning services. There is also a massive courtyard where you can sit down and enjoy food from different stores and drink Chinese tea at the same time. I am sure they offer beer as well.

Has the feeling that this is something you almost see in every city in China. Snack booth, souvenirs souvenirs souvenirs and somehow a little bit of local influence which would be the panda background and the opera.
It’s good but not something new for China travelers so go ahead check it out for an hour or 2 maximum I would say

After visiting the pandas, Jinli Old Street ranks as one of Chengdu's top tourist attractions.

Maybe the street was once charming (many of the buildings are indeed beautiful), but everything has turned into ugly food stalls and tourist trinket shops, swarming with people who apparently find this exciting.

We found it an absolutely dreadful experience with no authenticity or charm.

This was such an awesome part of Chengdu. The food was so good, and the streets seemed to never end. You can be there for such a long time, and still not be able to see every little shop. I recommend going at night so you can see the lights at night. It almost feels like a China town in China haha

The temple areas are immense and brilliantly preserved. Once you leave, the rest of the run is full of glitzy shops, tourist trinkets with bad food. Very shiny, sparkly excuses for making money from the tourist. Nothing to do with Chinese culture. Like a cheap market with too many flashy lights. Avoid at all costs.

We spent our last hour here. It was good but wished we could have stay another night to experience this town at night. Quite interesting. Plenty to see. Lots of food here. Area is clean and nice to walk about. Glad we visited Jinli.
