Yep just like its description Kuanzhai Alley, is a warren of shops in varying sized alleys. We enjoyed wondering around and seeing all sorts of different souvenirs and food. We did prefer Jinli Pedestrian Street for its atmosphere though...

We went here because we heard there was a traditional hot pot restaurant that also had the face changing opera as entertainment. We really enjoyed the traditional Sichuan hotpot and the face changing opera was a real highlight and something that the whole family will...More

If you're looking for crowds and overpriced shopping, this is the place for you. This is a popular place for domestic tourists, and the day we were there it was so crowded we couldn't wait to get through it and on to something more relaxing.

Prefer Jinli because more picturesque- but if u have time for both, would recommend. Some of the shops are same branch on both streets. Pedestrian only street lined with shops selling local foods, handicrafts and anything else imaginable. Great way to immerse in the food...More

This is a good area to wander around for a few hours. Good for street food and souvenirs. There are also great restaurants here which have live Sichuan opera and dance shows.

The narrow and wide alleys (there are three of them in the same area) are great to spend a couple of hours wandering through imagining how it used to be in decades gone by. They tried to keep them as authentic as possible while they...More

Touristy but wonderful markets, such a variety of shops and things to eat. You can sit in on a play for a small fee also. We ventured less than 50m from here and found a very local Chinese market

This was a lot like several other pedestrian zones we've visited on our trip. It had a lot of clothing and souvenir shops, many open to bargaining. There were also many places that sold Sichuan peppercorns, peppers, & hot pot concentrate. The street food looked...More

I recommend to take subway when you want to leave the area. Taking Didi to go there is ok but booking is Didi when you leave requires you to give exact landmarks to meet your driver as there are many entrances for this area.

Good question! We were there in the evening, until around 10, and things were still busy. But I'm guessing by midnight things are winding down. If you get there around 10, based on our experience, you'll still find lots of... More
