It's crowded, you can't walk freely. It's cheesy old Chinese and it feels a bit fake. By it's a great spot to search for souvenirs. Food is too overpriced, just walk out and have one of the restaurants nearby.

Jinli street is very touristic, with a lot of too expensive souvenir shops and food stalls. Great for getting some quick souvenirs, but there are greater areas to enjoy Chengdu. However, in case you want to meet Western people, here is a good chance you'll find one or two.

located in the western part of Chengdu city, you can get there via city buses, also where you can see Wuhou temple, reflecting the Shu culture of Three Kingdoms in Ancient Chinese history.

Lovely part of Chengdu, loads to see and plenty of places to just sit and gaze around. Can get a bit crowded, so be prepared to walk slowly and just absorb the fantastic atmosphere.

It's like Disneyland, sort of China but not really. Too clean, too organized. Suggestion: turn around, walk out (past the Starbucks), cross the street, and go into the Tibetan neighborhood for some real culture.

I love this street - the colours, the atmosphere and the buildings. There is a Starbucks. It is the place to get souvenirs. The kids enjoyed walking around too looking at the different stalls. Great way to spend the morning.

Although overrun by youth, if you have a moment, be sure to visit the Wuhou monastery and then JinLi street...it is so pretty and there are interesting street foods and little pubs and places to sit and watch the world.

Full of local food, souvenir, and lots of bars. Nice place. If you want to mingle with the local in a retro atmosphere, it worth a try.

It's nice to visit this place. But, I think souvenirs there are very expensive. I think you may visit it if your stay in Chengdu is at least one week. Otherwise, many other places are more interesting

Jinli was my favourite area to explore in Chengdu. Many people complain that the area is touristy, which it is, but I don't think this reduces it's charm! There's plenty of bars, restaurants to explore and some nice outdoor areas for you to relax in, and if you're brave enough perhaps get your ears cleaned! There are also some nice... More
