This is a nice place to stroll but there isn't much offered that is all that attractive. Street goods prices are high. The place was crowded and the Chinese culture doesn't include waiting your turn, so there is much pushing and shoving on occasion. People watching can be quite good.

We were really looking forward to wandering around here at night however we're a little disappointed. Although lovely to look at, lit up beautifully and designed really well, we didn't really enjoy much more... The crowds were crazy with rude people pushing you, stopping in front of you and taking selfies in front of absolutely everything.. None of the souvenirs... More

Jinli Pedestrian Street is nice enough to visit but it is a new street constructed to look old. It is very 'touristy' and doesn't really give an insight into Chinese life.

The area of the Jinli Pedestrian Streets is jammed with amazing snacks and food. We ate so many interesting and delicious foods while wandering around for the evening. The lanterns, live music at the local bars and pubs, and neon lights really add a festive atmosphere to the whole area. Highly recommended.

Nice to see but in our view a bit too touristic. Some shops, more restaurants, not sure whether they are nice. For us it was a box we had to tick but not.more than that.

This pedestrian street features live performances and is a great place to enjoy local snacks, have lunch and purchase souvenirs. It is also adjacent to a city park with cultural features and an important temple.

Had wonderful street food here and walked around the shops very busy lots of stalls and shops bit on the expensive side but it is aimed at the tourist! Try bullfrogs on a stick and some very hot rice noodles and some green tea ice cream enjoy the different culture full of colour.

If you are looking for souvenirs and a place to try local food then Jinli Pedestrian Street is the place to visit. There is no entry fee and it is open all year round. The street is in a central location and quite easy to get to. Highly recommended for shopping for local products.

Jinli is a nice area but mostly full of trinket and souvenir shops plus a few food and drink stalls... nice place to spend a couple of hours but there are better places to experience more authentic Chengdu

This is a fun place with alleys for eating, shopping and enjoyment. The focus is local crafts where one purchases gifts to take home. Obviously, it is quite "touristy" and many shops selling identical goods and bargaining is an option.
