Qintai Traditional Street

Located just West of Central Chengdu, Qintai Lu is an ancient-China themed street which is a popular tourist destination. Hotpot restaurants, tea houses, and Sichuan opera venues line this street, which is illuminated by lanterns and ambient lights in the evening. A beautiful street to stroll down in the evening, this area stays open until late at night when the last hotpot patrons have retired to their homes or hotels. The most well known Sichuan Opera venue in Chengdu, Shufeng Yayun, is located on Qintai Lu.


Since Qintai Lu is an established Chengdu tourist destination, prices are higher here than in most other areas of the city. That extra cost is paying for the scenic amenities that Qintai Lu offers, which are unique in Chengdu.

    This is another place that’s great to take visiting friends or family. Walking down this street in the evening is nice, there are some (expensive) restaurants, tea houses, small shops, and the Shufeng Sichuan Opera House. Worth visiting.
