  • There's nothing really special here aside from it being outside the city and away from the hustle and bustle of Chengdu. The "ancient street," like many ancient streets, is just a series of shopfronts...  more »

  • Compared with larger, more impressive old towns in China like Lijiang in nearby Yunnan province, Luodai isn’t much to see. There’s only one main street and a couple of side streets, all of which can b...  more »

  • If you have a lot of time in Chengdu, it's worth a day trip. You can get a taxi for about 18 dollars including the toll or the bus for about 50 cents. The town has recently been rebuilt so it's not original, but it remains a fun day out. There are lots of shops selling local Hakka snacks and crafts. There are also activities such as shooting games and trick art houses. However, it can be difficult to get back to Chengdu, it's best to get a bus as taxis are usually full when you find them. Good for families and kids.
  • Really a fantastic place...! It was a great experience of visiting there. I went there after visiting the Jinlong Great Wall... The streets, architecture, shops everything was impressive. At the time of night the streets were looking amazing... such a dreamy place... Reminded me of old China.
  • Wonderful, fascinating place.
  • So commercial here
  • 離成都最近的一處客家古鎮,少了喧囂的人群,比較沒有商業化,彷彿走進別人的村莊,有時間可以去走一走。
