The winding, narrow lanes and bustling promenades of this area have been rebuilt to resemble the trading and folk art streets of old West Sichuan. The traditional-style architecture remains, but the pristine condition of the restored structures ironically detracts from their authenticity. The vibe is still centered on commerce though, with tourists as the top target. Here you will find plenty of teahouses, restaurants, bars and theatrical stages as well as vendors selling handicrafts and local specialties. Try some shao kao – bite-sized, chargrilled meat and vegetables dipped in chili powder and served on a bamboo skewer.
