Right next to the Wuhou Shrine, Jinli
Promenade is a rebuilt trading and folk art street imitating the ancient-style
buildings in West Sichuan, condensed the essence out of the worldly life in
Chengdu: teahouses, inns, restaurants, bars, theatrical stages, handicrafts,
local snacks and specialties. The
ancient Jinli was one of the oldest and the most commercialized streets in the
history of West Shu and had been well-known throughout the country in Qin, Han,
and Three Kingdoms Periods.
Strolling down the narrow street, you can experience the particular cultural refreshment. You can enjoy Sichuan Opera in a wooden stage halfway down the Jinli Street. The actors perfect performances will wow you. Another interesting performance is the Shadow Play, which is a traditional Chinese folk art with over one thousand years of history.
