Great for seeing old buildings, shopping and people watching

An area filled with positive energy and nice shops, this is a good way to spend a little money and time with friends. I recommend at least visiting once.

it was very touristy and likely overpriced goods but the good thing is the lanterns light up and make the whole area just mesmerizing. Use train to go there and walk from station about 15mins..

Busy tourist area that takes you back to the old days. Red lanterns hanging everywhere, so it is best seen at night. Plenty of souvenir shopping and food stands to grab dinner.

Go there lots to see authentic food and sites, you feel safe and there is so much too see. Lots of people, but that's ok as it makes for a great atmosphere, the lovely smells and sounds, all as you expect china to be.

We went on a Friday night. It was busy and crowded but this is to be expected in China and if you don't like crowds you'd better avoid it. The food was abundant, cheap and tasty. Stall or shop holders do not normally speak English so you might like to use Google translate, know some basic Mandarin, use pictures or... More

Sadly we didn't spend much time here but it's such a nice place to just take a stroll. The buildings are really pretty and plenty of outdoor cafes & places to buy souvenirs (though some are quite pricey). Tons of shops selling panda items.

This is a good spot for tourists as you can see and taste lots of local food in on place. Also the street bring you back to feel what Chengdu is like over 100 years ago.

Though this road holds some invaluable cultural relics it is now nothing but a tourist attraction. Look closely for details and try to feel the road 300 years ago is really worth witnessing what damage has been done to what must have been a wonderful buzzing street. It would really not recommend this road to anyone with some experience in... More

Jinli (narrow) street is really nice. You can find a lot of small souvenir shops and traditional restaurant. Personally my favorite part was the architecture. The only downside ; the crowd. It is so crowded you can not walk at a normal pace. But they kind of warn us by calling narrow street right ?
