The Yellow Dragon Brook old town started 2100 years ago. Its located 36 KM (22.5 miles) from the center of Chengdu and southeast of the Shuangliu (CTU) airport. The old town has been renovated and there is a small meandering brook that is a natural divider of the long main street with a sprinkling of bridges and wooden logs across... More

I also went on a sunday, catching a midday bus from xinnanmen bus station (14rmb) which took an hour. Turn left at the gate on arrival at huanglongxi and you can walk the 500m upslope to the town. I was pleasantly surprised at first at the decor and english signage but then i got to the main bit and was... More

We visited this town as part of our tour of China. Unfortunately the day we went it rained and rained so we did not see it at it's best. We could imagine how it would be on a bright summer's day (although the crowds could be unbearable perhaps). There was a small stream running through the middle to a river... More

I gather many ancient towns in China are like this - the town itself is ancient, but pretty much everything in the town was built yesterday, albeit in a style similar to the ancient. Once it may have been genuinely historically interesting, now it is just a tourist spot, full of small shops and kiosks. These offer a good range... More

Visited Huanglongxi on a very busy Sunday. We arrived early as we had a train to catch later in the day and were very glad we were as early as we were as it became very crowded. The waterway was full of children with water pistols and other water toys spraying each other gleefully and the shops and cafes were... More

Huanglongxi Ancient Town was one of the top 10 ancient towns in China. I took a bus from Xinnamen Bus station to Huanglongxi Passenger Transport Center. The bus fare costs RMB 14. From the Huanglongxi Passenger Transport Center, I took another public bus direct to Huanglongxi ancient town. The public bus fare costs RMB1. In fact, the ancient town is... More

I knew going in that this town, like many "old towns" in China is very tourist oriented and lightish on real historical buildings but I just couldn't get into it. Could put it down somewhat to the busy Sunday afternoon crowds, but overall it just felt very fake, and the admitted prettiness wasn't doing it for it me. Watching hordes... More

Huanglongxi Ancient Town is a bit of a drive from Chengdu, something like an hour and a half. It is not a good trip if you're not well rested, as you will do plenty of walking once you get there. Huanglongxi is an absolutely charming place. A small stream runs through the walking street area of this lovely town. On... More

Enjoyed the walk and visit this place with my husband and friends. Feel the ancient town of China with may souveniers and foods shops along the way. I like the most is the stream that divided the 'town' into 2 and ended up in a river. For those travell with young children, bring along a swim suit or extra cloths... More
