Kuanzhai Ancient Street of Qing Dynasty, Chengdu

(3.8/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Walking around Kuanzhai Ancient Street of Qing Dynasty takes you back to a Qing-period leisure district for local imperial officers. With a number of old-fashioned teahouses, the three well-preserved parallel streets offer a traditional laid-back retreat from the busy city. Sample some Sichuan cuisine in a folk-style restaurant, visit boutique hotels, explore traditional courtyards, or simply watch locals play games outside their shops. Street performances of traditional music happen regularly along a 400 m (1,312 ft) wall made of bricks from different dynastic periods. A visit to Kuanzhai Ancient Street of Qing Dynasty represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Chengdu vacation planner to plot your vacation.
