Arrival at the train station isn't very inspiring although the train service itself was excellent.
It's a long, dusty cab drive to the town but for a mere ¥20 we got there in 15-20 minutes.
The old town was pretty though, and well served by restaurants, a couple of coffee shops and lots and lots of market traders selling everything from whole chickens baked in leaves and clay to Mao mugs and ethnic style dress. Friendly, but surprisingly, not too pushy, but then I was with Chinese friends who provided a buffer for me.
It was the Full Moon Festival and we got a great table beside the impressive pagoda for dinner, which was very tasty. Afterwards we went for a boat ride on the canal before retiring to the Long Yuan hotel nearby, where I had one of the best sleeps of my visit to China. Got woken up by wedding firecrackers at 7am though, but when in China...
Took the train to Beijing the next day; again, excellent service, cheap and air-conditioned with a trolley service, and I got a day-bed. Less than ¥150 too.
Maybe not super-authentic, but shows how the domestic tourism industry is developing. When things there get cleaner and greener, China will be hard to beat..

Visit to Luanzhou Ancient City
Feb 2016 • Friends
I spent a bit of time here with my wife's family. This place is a replica ancient Chinese village. This place is geared towards Chinese tourists. Not much English is spoken. Many people have moved in and live in accommodation there.
Highlights: stroll through the city taking in the sights including a Buddhist temple. We were there while it snowed and the houses were very pretty with the snow.

There are plenty of Chinese and Korean restaurants to try. In terms of Western food there is nothing apart from the Dutch cafe which is nothing to get excited about.

We found a Chinese style hotel near where all the jade shops are. Had a look through and it seemed pleasant. I'd probably stay there.
