Wide and Narrow Alley

Wide and Narrow Alley also known as “Kuanzhai Alley.” Located in downtown Chengdu, it is formed by three historical paralleled alleys: Kuan (Wide) Alley, Zhai (Narrow) Alley, and Jing Alley.

The three streets are the remaining parts from the Qing dynasty. The combination of the ancient style buildings, local Chengdu life, delicious local foods, and traditional handicraft shops, the Wide and Narrow Alley make this one of the must-visit places in Chengdu city.
