Jinli is one of the most popular tourist destinations in downtown Chengdu, featuring old-style buildings, local snacks and folk handicraft shops.
One of the most popular spots in downtown Chengdu, Jinli Street features old-style architecture of West Sichuan and local culture. The name "Jinli" dates back to the Han dynasty about 2, 000 years ago, meaning "the street of embroidery workshops" literally.
Many aspects of the urban life of Chengdu ― tea houses, restaurants, bars, theatrical stages, handicraft stores, local snack and specialty shops ― are present in the area of the street .
The Jinli Street tops the list of The World's 21 Most Beautiful Streets released by the travel channel of the official website of CNN on December 25. Jinli is also the only entry from China in the list, acclaimed for its unique traditional characteristics and profound culture.
As CNN notes, "Qing Dynasty style wooden houses and shops, replete with red lanterns and traditional signages help make Chengdu's biggest tourist attraction look pleasingly historic. While it was restored into its current form in 2004, Jinli traces its history back some 1,800 years, making it one of the oldest shopping streets in Sichuan province."
Address: No.231, Wuhouci Street (next to Wuhouci Museum)
