  • 去青岩古镇已有一段时间,当时只逛了逛那条长街,逛了好久都没逛完,那次只是粗略的去游玩,觉得还不错,下次有机会我要好好的去玩一次 
  • 喜欢旅游的我~很喜欢民族风情~少数民族衣服漂亮~自己和爱人经常去游玩~特别是为了能吃上美味的青岩猪脚还从花溪公园骑自行车来到青岩古镇品味一下~也是一件趣事

  • 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!
