Kuanzhai Alley, composed of Kuan Alley (Wide Alley), Zhai Alley (Narrow Alley) and Jing Alley, are relatively large-scale ancient streets in Chengdu dating back to the Qing Dynasty(1644-1911).

Kuan Alley gathers the most and most complete old buildings in the entire block. Here you can enjoy a cup of tea, eat authentic Sichuan cuisine, and experience the customs of old Chengdu. Zhai Alley has both the buildings of the late Qing Dynasty and the early Republic of China, and the early western-style houses. It is a recreation area mainly based on western-style food culture and leisure. Jing Alley is a typical epitome of folk Chengdu. In addition to the fascinating brick culture wall, it also gathers Chengdu's specialty snacks and traditional products.
