Located in the center of downtown Chengdu, Chunxi Road (春熙路) is the most well-known and popular fashion and shopping center of the city, lined with shopping malls, luxury brand stores, and boutique shops.
In the past the shopping area was just a single pedestrian street in downtown Chengdu, but now it has developed and spread to become much larger, covering several city blocks and spilling over in all directions. Chunxi Road offers a plethora of shopping destinations for everyone.
Line 2 has been put into operation and made Chunxi Road a more conveniently reachable site at the Chunxi Lu stop — one stop east of the Tianfu Square interchange.
Here is a video clip, which shows the past and present of the city of Chengdu and is narrated by Mr. Yuan Tingdong, author of About Chengdu’s Old Streets and Alleys..
