Tibetian Shopping Street -- Shopping
SE of Wuhou Temple
Chengdu, Sichuan China
Located to the SE of Wuhou Temple, this street shouldn't be too hard to find. Just look for shops flying Tibetan flags and bearing signs in Tibetan script.
If that doesn't clue you in, perhaps the sight of young Tibetan "monks" (quotes reflect personal suspicion that many of these young men don robes for reasons other than pure devotion) asking for money will. The street is a decent place to shop for things Tibetan, and also a good place to fill up on yak butter tea. Also a good place to get information on travelling onward to Tibet.
