The walking street comprises of a number of restaurants and souvenir shops, clearly designed as a tourist trap, with prices to match. However, if you are looking at picking up some souvenirs, then this is a convenient place to visit. Interestingly, the tourists appeared to be mostly local Chinese, which was also reflected in the lack of English language options... More

Pedestrian street with many restaurants. Recently built, in traditional style and narrow streets. Crowded during the weekend. Not a shopping destination

it was very touristy and likely overpriced goods, but convenient and something guides all recommend--no harm in visiting but not a must-see. Similar in feel to wise and narrow alleys.

Excellent place to buy souvenirs, local foods or even seeing the design of local Chinese house.. 👌 love it! At night, all the lanterns light up and make the whole area just mesmerizing! Hope Jinli maintain as what it is. Use train to go there and walk from station about 15mins..

Must do in Chengdu. The street was more like a district. Street food, drinks, shops. So crowded and alive with energy! Amazing spot

Love Jinli more than Kuanzhai alley (宽窄巷子). Almost the same atmosphere but Jinli is more affordable. Get your souvenirs here instead of Kuanzhai alley, averagely cheaper. Lots of street food too.

But here are a lot of food, such as: three guns, Mapo tofu, dan dan... More

I expect this was lovely once, but now it is very crowded and very touristy. Having said that, we did find a cute, quirky place for a coffee and some of the shops were quite nice, but there is no atmosphere and it is hard to appreciate the lovely old buildings with so many crowds. Worth a quick look if... More
