Wide and Narrow Alleys

Authors: Go Chengdu


Wide & Narrow Alleys is a showcase of old Chengdu life.
Wide & Narrow Alleys has risen to be one of the most popular tourist attractions in downtown Chengdu in recent years and has a nickname of “the Real Chengdu in Chengdu” for its old-style architecture and vestiges of life styles in old Chengdu.
The site covers an area of over 30 hectares, where the remaining old constructions of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911) are preserved or renovated, making it a showcase of old-style Chengdu life.
Consisting of three parallel alleys, the Kuan, Zhai and Jing alleys, the area boasts a pleasant mixture of a traditional setting tinted with the modern touch — the stone-paved paths, blue-brick buildings, quadruple courtyards with bronze button studded wooden doors, luxury teahouses and restaurants, stands selling snacks and handicraft articles, and modern Western style bars.
The video clip tells you the past of the old Wide & Narrow Alleys.
