This is a "for real" ancient part of town. It's loaded with street vendors, restaurants and it's a very active site. The "ancient" buildings are just that. No phony stucco over prefab or concrete. Lots of walking. A fun way to spend an afternoon and/or evening.

Unlike many other artificial "ancient towns" that were built with cement in recent years, the old houses and courtyards in Langzhong are original. As a major tourist attraction in Sichuan, it has not been ruined by commercialization. You can still see local residents living their daily life there. You can even saw two schools and a kindergarten hidden among the... More

This is a very nice old town. It's a lot smaller than Lijiang but definitely less touristy. It's good to visit soon before large throngs of international (and local) tourist groups invade the place. We stayed 2 nights within the old town which gave us more than sufficient time to comb through the town at a leisurely pace. However, one... More

langzhong ancient town is a nice place to spend a couple of days. even though the main road is pretty touristic, the atmosphere here is much more authentic than in lijiang or dali. walking along the side streets you'll see local people living their everyday life and not just shops or restaurants for tourists. if you're looking for a place...

I really liked this city and am grateful to our hosts for taking us to Langzhong. Although surrounded by a large modern city, the ancient center is wonderfully maintained and, as someone else said, not commercialized, at least not too much yet. I think, of all the old cities I have visited in China, this one comes closest to answering... More

You can go there by public bus in few hours (they say 3, I say 5) from Chengdu and it is a pleasent trip through the lush sichuanese countriside. Once there, begin your trip in the feng shuei museum, which has a 3d model of the city and the sourrououndings spot and let you understand why it is where it... More

Langzhong is one of the few places in western China where you can see a real old town without overt commercialism. It feels natural and the people are so friendly. There some wonderful old wooden traditional courtyard-style family hotels but unfortunately they are not on TripAdvisor's hotel list. I recommend the He Jia family hotel if you can speak a... More
