Jinli Ancient Street in Chengdu. In Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan, Jinli is a popular tourist attraction. The area has been a marketplace since 221 BC during the Qin dynasty. Now you can weave through the area and pop in and out of shops selling traditional folk handicraft, and grab a bite of the amazing street food they have. Definitely one of my favorite places we visited in Sichuan!
