Nice place to visit, but food is so so.

I lived in Chengdu for many years. In general, Jinli is a nice place to visit and enjoy the special culture. I pretty like the opera show and silk art. However, the food is so... read more

This is a great traditional Chinese pedestrian outlet, and is definitely one to see when you visit. People friendly, and no hassles from shop owners.

Must visit if You go to Chengdu! Loved that You can see how everything is made. There are also few temples and lots of places to eat (mainly street food).

I lived in Chengdu for many years. In general, Jinli is a nice place to visit and enjoy the special culture. I pretty like the opera show and silk art. However, the food is so so and expensive there. You can try some snacks if you only have limited time in Chengdu. If you have more spare time, try to... More

although a little touristy and often crowds Jinli street is worth a visit. A good place to eat and also to shop for local crafts and gifts to take home. Also worth visiting the local Wenshu temple as this his very interesting

My first day when i arrive in chengdu, i went to JINLI ANCIENT STREET. It was quite big area beside main road with entrance gate that written down JINLI (in mandarin character of course). Inside, the decoration really made me feel being throwback to the ancient time. I can find unique snack and local foods, and also unique authentic souvenir.

Very fun place to shop and visit! Cultural handcrafted items for sale. Lots of shops and eating places including Dairy Queen. I even enjoyed watching cotton candy made into a floral design.

I have been to Chengdu and there are few places I always like to visit. Jinli is one of the choices. It's crowded during weekends though. Do visit if it's your first time in Chengdu.

You need about 3 hrs to visit the street, it's a good place to visit but not spectacular! The snacks were great!

Comparing with Nanjing Pedestrian Street in Shanghai, or some Street like that in Nanjing, Suzhou, Jinli street is just "so so". It's more narrow than Wide and Narrow Alley. We got here by taxi from Wide and Narrow Alley, it took 10 mins and price was 10 RMb. There are plenty of foods and souvenirs here. The pubs with singer... More
