Luoyang

3.6
Caves · Sacred & Religious Sites · Parks
One of the oldest imperial cities in the country, Luoyang gives access to a wealth of cultural sites protected by UNESCO for their importance to the world's cultural heritage. Situated close to the point where two major regional rivers meet, the area has long been considered sacred, and was once believed to be the center of the country. While few signs of the former political and economic importance of the citadel remain, the attractions of Luoyang lie outside the limits of the city itself, including ancient grottoes with ornamental carvings, and old, storied Buddhist temples. Our China trip planner allows you to plan your trip to Luoyang and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Luoyang

Most international tourists who arrive in Luoyang are much more interested in what lies outside the city, but thankfully its abundant local attractions--natural and man-made--have been largely unspoiled by the addition of hotels, hostels, and inns. The same cannot be said for the city itself, which has covered itself in new buildings, even at times to the detriment of historical sites. Look to the north of the river for the bulk of options, with luxury hotels, backpacker-friendly youth hostels, and ordinary guesthouses to choose from.
