Another Street Market!

Good experience but crowded in early evening. However, we were not as pressurised to buy, as in othe street markets we visited.

At first glance this looks like a traditional Chinese street removed from the more modern ones you see nowadays. Closer examination however show that this a newly constructed replica to attract the tourists and the Chinese looking for the experience. There are a lot of shops but majority are food, bars or coffee shops. There are better examples in xi'an... More

We visited Jinli street in the evening and it was really nice to see the lights and Chinese lanterns. The architecture and lake in the middle of the street are worth a look. The street was busy and there were lots of shops selling tat for tourists. We were also warned by our local guide to keep possessions close as... More

This street is a shoppers paradise - full of shops and restaurants. The buildings are done in the old Chinese style and people can dress up in Chinese costumes for photos. A fun place to spend an afternoon or evening.

If you must go shopping in Chengdu, then you will find this street caters for everything from high end to tat (the latter, mostly panda-related). There are attractive buildings here which have been well-restored, including the most discrete Starbucks in the world, but this is very much a tourist version of China. If you want the real thing you are... More

This is just next to the Wu Huo temple and its long winding streets with shops and eateries are the flavors of old china that we came to see. Highly recommend this. Do not give this a miss. Also be prepared to face a lot of people if you turn up at a busy time.

I gave this an average rating because it is one of the curiously Chinese contradictions, a really well done real fake. I live bin Beijing and have seen things like this all over, Shanghais Xin Tiandi, Beijing's Qianmen complex warren of 'new' hutong shops. This walking street is really quite pretty in a Chinese chocolate box way but most of... More

Looked fab, but unfortunately we got there at about 9:30 p.m. and a lot were closing up so didn't get the full atmosphere of the street.
