  • The ancient town of Shaxi is located in the sword-Chuan County, bounded by the beautiful river and Dali, is the most complete tea-horse road, the history of the salt-horse trail and heritage traces are preserved here. The little 趙 only heard that Sandy Creek was great, but he didn't come along and guided us all the way to a small town, where the owner of the museum suggested we go for a stroll in the Mountain View, on the Internet and then search for a one, the fact that the ancient town in the back of the library less than a kilometer road, but every day to look accustomed to the ancient buildings of the local residents are not strange strike! When we were close to ancient towns, we saw many foreign people shuttling among them, later, after the Internet, I learned that the cultural heritage protection specialist Jacques Jacques, who had worked in the old town of Feiner, brought a group of people Gu to restore the ancient towns back to their homes. Under the Call of monuments, the World Heritage Fund (Fund), which is based in New York, has added the bazaar to the 2002 "World Hundred Endangered Heritage Sites". Soviet Lishi's Rational Academy of Engineering and the sword-Chuan county government together formed a protection group. In ancient towns, many more than 500 years of yellow wood, the ancient theater also has a 369-year-old tree, the Orthodox temple is built in the Ming dynasty of the three Courtyard Building group, after the Swiss expert assisted in the restoration, it is now the only survivors ancient market representative building in the Yunnan-Tibet tea-horse Road, in which the wall painting around the outer wall of the male treasure House is dynamic and fine, It is the earliest Buddhist tantric wall painting in the southern area of the cloud, which is a precious one, with centuries of cypress and a flower tree in the temple. TripAdvisor's recommended flag flag at the mouth of the Sha Creek Court (formerly known as Old Knowledge) it is the most representative accommodation in the house, where the tradition of the Bai people was built, and it was accidentally discovered that it was created by our old hometown, but he just retired to Taiwan, Invested some money and some shares in support of his original team, let him have a reason to come back! Especially like the ancient town of Shaxi, there are not many people in the town, so there are still ancient Pot, plus the old tree is another reason. But I believe it is not long before the people who know more and more, may also face another kind of fall!

  • It is a small town about 90 mins drive from Shanghai. Takes about 1-2 hours to stroll from one end to the other. Nothing too special about this town, so only come here if you have been to others like ...  more »

  • good place to visit and take pictures ... visited here in 2015 and i think it was before the renovation.....
  • 超有FU的老鎮,平日蠻冷清的,但拍攝藝術古裝風格的照片超適合不過了。
  • 中國4A旅遊景點,古色古香的老街,食物也不錯吃,商業化還不嚴重。最重要的是不會人擠人!
  • Shaxi ancient town, to this time is maintained, unfortunately, did not see.
