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!

The night lights really beautify the place. And there is a wide assortment of food to eat! There is also open seating in the middle of this area for performances and dining. Would highly recommend to go at night to enjoy the local cuisine.

We stopped in the Jinli area for a quick dinner and were impressed with the quality of the food we bought and saw a surprise mask changing show. This area has lots of food options and seems to be favoured by locals. There are many shops to buy all kinds of knick knacks and nice areas to sit down. We were most tempted to buy souvenirs in this area as we found many things that we liked and felt they were one of a kind!

Although it is named as a "street", Jinli Pedestrian is more than a street. There are restaurants, souvenir shops, artists everywhere. In a corner an artist carves your name on a stone where on the other corner another artist writes your name on papers in traditional way. You can buy panda toys or eat delicious meals. Don't miss to eat grilled octopus and squid skewers. I loved it.

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

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.

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.
