Jinjiang District (simplified Chinese: 锦江区; traditional Chinese: 錦江區; pinyin: Jǐnjiāng qū) is one of nine districts of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, China. The Jin River flows through it. It is bordered by Longquanyi District to the east, Shuangliu County to the south, Wuhou District to the west, Qingyang District to the northwest, and Chenghua District to the north.

As of 2013, Chengdu’s Jinjiang district "is where the young and hip hang out — often in pairs".[3] The area has many "department stores and several other retailers, including the Gap, Zara, Uniqlo, and local brands like Li Ning".[3]

It is a laid back area where the locals enjoy traditional Chinese pastimes such as tea and mahjong.[citation needed] Langqiao bridge is located in the district. On the bridge there is a well-known restaurant[by whom?] where many famous local and national Chinese gather to enjoy the traditional food which is very spicy and numbing.
