Luodai is an ancient town just outside Chungdu. The buildings date back to the 1600's. The main street is 1km long with ancient buildings on either side containing shops, craftsmen and restaurants. There are a number of dress and costume shops where people dress up to have their photo taken. It is easy to reach by either bus or taxi from Chengdu. The journey is c. 20km and takes about 45-60 mins. On a Sunday it is busy with local torists. Many of the shops and street vendors are of the native Hakka tribe. Well worth a visit for half a day.

Luodai is a refurnished Hakkha Community in Chengdu. It worth to spend 2 hours there just try local food and shop some cheap interesting things. In some way a real part of local people's life was reserved. If you have enough time, as a local Chengdu native people, you can choose this place over Jinli Old Street or Kuanzhai Alley... More

After all the ancient places we have seen I didn't think Luodai was all that interesting. There is a museum there about the Haka people which is very interesting and has some very old artefacts there but otherwise just souvenir shops

This ancient Hakka style street is worth visiting. It is a mix of historic sights/activities, local snacks, and cheap toys. I recommend getting your picture taken dressed as a Chinese emperor and his wife!

Very interesting walk down a street that has been able to maintain its historical look. Many shops are offering products that are interesting, but there are lots of typical tourist offerings.

An ‘ancient town’ brings to mind untarnished monuments of heritage, but as with most ancient towns i’ve experienced in china this one combines a little cultural history with overwhelming modern consumerism. So many shops selling overpriced plastic tack, symptom of the ‘made in china’ phenomenon i guess. I even saw one shop selling a badly prioritised t shirt saying "rape... More

Basically, this is just a really long, ancient looking street. At least that's all we explored. That and a buddhist temple nearby. Maybe we missed other attractions in the city. We ended up coming to Luodai because we woke up too late to head to Leshan to see the Big Buddah. This was a nice afternoon spent walking down the... More

I took the bus from Chengdu - it's very close and easy to organise if you go to Xinnanmen Bus Station. Buses go every 10 minutes. Go out the back of the bus station to buy a ticket - not inside the main building. The most interesting part is a long street that meanders up a hill with a temple... More
