Jinli Street

Opened in 2004, although this is essentially a prefab strip of faux Qing-era buildings, there is still something very charming about Jinli Street. And the area does have a lot of history, renowned as a commercial center even before 200 BC. Located just east of Wuhou Shrine, Jinli Street is well worth a wander and is a great place to pick up local handicrafts and other souvenirs. At times both wide and narrow, the street stretches some 350 meters and along with shops is lined with a number of cafes, bars, restaurants, teahouses and even a couple of hotels.

Directions: Jinli Street runs basically along the east side of the Wuhou Shrine, off Wuhouci Dajie.
