My visit was at the same time as the Yi Ethnic Torch Festival, so the Ancient City was busy with plenty of tourists. The shops are interesting, there was a lot of outdoor entertainment, and we went to a pleasant and clean restaurant.
I had a alright time there with my parents, lamb soup was nice, fruits was fresh and quite cheap. The street is very commercial though with pretty much man-made of everything, it's okay to pop in if you happen to be that way I guess.
