Jinli Ancient Street Tours

star-5
23 reviews
Jinli Ancient Street
Stretching for 1,148 feet (350 meters), just east of Wuhou Temple, Jinli Ancient Street is one of the oldest shopping streets in Chengdu, dating back to the Three Kingdoms period. Restored in 2004, this historical lane paved with green flagstone still teems with shops, restaurants, and food stalls in traditional architecture.

The Basics
Jinli Ancient Street is a great place to sample local snacks and delicacies, and to pick up souvenirs, especially locally made handicrafts. In addition to the numerous shopping and dining options, you’ll find a number of performances along the street, ranging from classic Sichuan opera and folk plays to shadow puppets, folk drama, and even traditional weddings.
 
With so many options available, you may find it helpful to go on a guided tour to help navigate the shops and recommend local delicacies to try, as well as to learn about the street’s long history. Day tours tend to include other top attractions such as Wuhou Temple and Qingyang Palace, and can even include a visit to see Chengdu’s famous giant pandas.  
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Jinli Ancient Street is a must-visit for foodies, shoppers, and history buffs.
  • Sichuan opera performances are also held in some restaurants and teahouses on the street. These performances are free with the purchase of food or tea.
  • Bring cash, as few vendors accept credit cards here.
 
How to Get There
Jinli Ancient Street is located just east of Wuhou Temple. Take bus number 1, 57, 82, 334, or 335 and get off at the Wuhou Ci (Wuhou Temple) stop.

When to Get There
Jinli Ancient Street’s shops and snack vendors tend to close around 10pm, while bars generally stay open later. At night the street is illuminated by traditional Chinese lanterns, which lend it a romantic atmosphere. Weekends are very busy, and the street is packed with locals and visitors alike.

Popular Gifts and Snacks
Among the many products sold on Jinli Street, popular items include lacquerware, old porcelain, Shu embroidery, clay figurines, paper cutouts, calligraphies, paintings, and folk handicrafts. Must-try street snacks and local specialties include dumplings, wontons, ma po tofu, fried sugar balls, and buckwheat noodle dishes.

evening walk through Jin Li street + Taikoo Li

evening walk through Jin Li street + Taikoo Li

Usually when we choose to travel to another place we tend to think no need to hire a guide, especially a shopping street. However, if the cost is not too much, why not have a nice and in-depth experience? You've spent thousands of hundreds travel here. Does 20 dollar matter? I am a licensed guide with bi-bachelor degrees: both "cold" major: politics and history, but i am a warm person :) I was born and raised up here, a typical Chengdu person, laid-back but hardworking. Looking forward to seeing you @ Chengdu!
