I lived in Chengdu for many years. In general, Jinli is a nice place to visit and enjoy the special culture. I pretty like the opera show and silk art. However, the food is so so and expensive there.

My first day when i arrive in chengdu, i went to JINLI ANCIENT STREET. It was quite big area beside main road with entrance gate that written down JINLI (in mandarin character of course). Inside, the decoration really made me feel being throwback to the ancient time. I can find unique snack and local foods, and also unique authentic souvenir.

I have been to Chengdu and there are few places I always like to visit. Jinli is one of the choices. It's crowded during weekends though. Do visit if it's your first time in Chengdu.
