Review: Jinli Street Chengdu, China
Try to come at night or in the late afternoon - the light decoration is really beautiful and gives the area a special glow. Also in February the area will be lit even nicer as part of the Lantern festival with floating plastic statues.
The pictures below were taken during the festival times - so only a partial section will be available outside that time period.
At least during the festival there is an entrance fee of $5 per person (yes the locals pay the same amount).
You can explore the whole area in 2-3 hours - it's worth it!
