This is an interesting spot for the architecture, but, something of a tourist trap in so far as there are lots and lots of shops all selling pretty much the same thing. I wasn't impressed with the commercialisation of the site, but that's my opinion. Do not venture here on a Chinese holiday - I was there off season and... More

i think this is the place where you can see the real local.They sell foods,souvenir. It's very unique. I found the strange foods that i never met before.And real Sichuan is spicy.So the foods is really spicy.There is also Chinese Opera here.It's worth to visit when you're in Chengdu , so you know the real local with the culture.

This is a lot of fun. Walk around and see the stores and the other people who are walking through it. We enjoy just walking through and taking pictures. There is food everywhere and great for snacks. Great to buy gifts to bring back to family and friends.

Bright and vibrant. A street not to be missed. Fantastic tea and 'opera' places. Don't expect opera as we know it but some hilarious entertainment. Great street food, souvenirs etc. A must if you are visiting Chengdu.

We have been to a million markets similar to this but Jinli is quite calm and relaxed compared with others. Lots of food and souvenirs. Interesting to see. I suggest a taxi to get there

We were taken here on the first day of our Titan Travel tour of China. The first thing that greeted us was a Starbucks! Things did however improve and we enjoyed a few hours wandering the loop of this "traditional" chinese street.

convenient and something guides all recommend. Similar in feel to wise street food, drinks, shops. It is narrow and so crowded and alive with energy

Was there back in Oct 2011, a very long pedestrian street similar to Yu yuan garden in Shanghai and Wangfujing in Beijing, you can find almost any Sichuan souvenirs alive there! They also have freshly made Ma La Tang, the most authentic kinds. Have a great time there! And stay away from bribery and beggars.
