  • 青岩古鎮算是很好逛的古鎮,也頗有風味,只是太過商業化失去古城小鎮的幽靜,跟台灣的老街一樣,早上人已不少,一過中午更是人滿為患,好似貴陽城內的人都跑來這渡假,看起來都是都市來的散客,旅遊團很少,這裏有很多特別的土產,所以不少外地人來這吃吃喝喝兼採買,又可以逛古鎮登小長城,難怪這麼多人。在這吃了波波餅、清明粑、楊梅汁、狀元蹄、粑糕稀飯、玫瑰糖、玫瑰涼粉、雞辣角,除了雞辣角外都很好吃啊。這古鎮最具吸引力...  more »
  • Ancient town with small businesses. Business owners' homes were on second story. Lots of inexpensive trinkets to purchase, food to eat, and historic sites to visit. With me, I had 4 other professors. ...  more »
  • 未入古鎮已被外圍周邊吸引,一入內觀看,真不愧被列入國家5A級之中。古鎮內有秀麗的山水城樓,更有很多歷史建築物!都是一眾打卡的好去處!更有很多特色的小吃及民族風格的作品等!真的是不枉此行!  more »

  • Self-driving is recommended. Even this place is a little bit over-commercialized, it is still worth visiting.
  • over commercialized, full of shops, most buildings are new, few of them are rebuilt, not recommend to visit at all.
  • 住貴陽市觀光,搭公車就可以到景點
  • 古鎮很有特色!
