Chengdu, Chunxi Road
Chunxi Road is in downtown Chengdu near Tianfu Square
It is the main shopping street and was built in 1924.
The street has been renewed and is nowadays a modern pedestrian center with department stores, shops, restaurants and fast food chains like Pizzahut and McDonalds. At night, huge billboards show advertisements of famous brands. There was also a Chengdu Tourist Information Center (in 2007, see picture) but in 2009 it was disappeared. I don't know if it's back again in 2013.
A hotel nearby Chinxi Road is Shudu Mansion Hotel (3 stars, 300m). The old backpackers hangout Traffic Hotel is 1600 meters away. We stayed in the three star Garden City Hotel which was within 15 minutes walk.
