Jinjiang District (Chinese: 锦江区; Pinyin: Jǐnjiāng Qū) is a district of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province, China. The Jin River flows through it.

As of 2013, Chengdu’s Jinjiang district "is where the young and hip hang out — often in pairs".[1] The area has many "department stores and several other retailers, including the Gap, Zara, Uniqlo, and local brands like Li Ning".[1]

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.
