We got there from Xinnanmen coach station in Chengdu (line 3). Took about 1hr on way there and about 1hr 45 minutes on way back due to traffic. Journey is mainly on Jinnan road dual carriageway & we arrived at the town surprisingly quickly once we'd got outside Chengdu. The coach station is about a 10 minute walk from the... More

Huang Longxi Ancient town is probably the most famous tourists' town in Sichuan nowadays. For many Chinese tourists, especially people from Sichuan, they really like to visit this town, because it has many local foods for people to try, chinese traditional antient buildings, green trees everywhere and a creek running though the main town with cool water in summer, the...

Bus to HuangLongXi departs Chengdu's Chadianzi bus terminal every 15-20mins. Just go to platform 32 and get the ticket on the bus, no need to enter the main terminal building for this destination. Bus station in HuangLongXi is 10 mins walk from the town; turn right upon exiting the bus station's compound.

This is a completely remodeled riverside village, with plenty of shops and eateries. Very popular as a weekend destination for locals and very touristic. But its location alongside a river is charming and there is plenty of opportunity to relax and drink or eat at restaurant and cafes' terraces. Regretfully, I was there on a rainy day, but I still...

I knew from reviews and other sources that an "ancient town" so close to Chengdu would probably have little of its original charm left, and would be largely devoted to separating tourists from their cash. In that, I was correct. We arrived here late (around 17:30) and the crush of people had largely subsided as they clogged the roads back... More

This old town is about an hour's drive out of Chengdu and is very popular with the locals at the weekend. There are lots of streets packed with places to eat or buy yourself a souvenir. Down by the river there are boat trips which take you away from the crowds and offer a nice snapshot of the bamboo lined... More

We were part of a private tour around Chengdu and stopped here on our way from Emeishan back to Chengdu at around 6:30 pm. Since it was the end of the day but on the weekend, it was still a little crowded but nothing like when we visited Wide and Narrow Alleys. This old town was much more enjoyable. We... More

Wow, what a great place to go to in the weekends! We went on a sunny afternoon to have a fun day out of Chengdu's busy city life. It really is worth the trouble traveling towards, because you can find lots of ethnic food stands. They sell local strawberries, freshly pressed blood oranges, flower wreath for on your heads, and...

This is about an hour south of Chengdu by driving. Very nice little old ancient area where you can find ethnic food. Famous 1 noodle store is everywhere. Lots of small shops and food stores. Lots of local here too. Very nice view of ancient china.

Nice ancient city with plenty of snacks and souvenir shops. It was very cold day but I definitely would have stayed longer if it was warmer. The locals were relaxed and having a good time. I recommend the artists gallery under the coffee shop near the foot of the bridge.
