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.

Charming village

A bit far from train station so make sure you plan ahead on how can get here. Nice to stroll on a very cool day. I found some interesting fruits also.

Nice day trip .. you can also hike the overlooking hill for views and nature. Outdoor shops on street accessible only to pedestrians . Also there are some very nice hotels nearby that our very affordable (300rmb) will get you a wide screen 4K display with hundreds of HD movies in your room.

I just love Ancient Chinese buildings, I wish I could have lived in these times. Beautiful buildings and beautiful costumes. Maybe a little commercialised now but worth a visit

about 30 minutes by taxi from Chengdu. Very geared around tourism and with some tackiness but the number and variety of genuinely old and reproduction old-style buildings still makes it a good destination. Went on a weekday and it was not particularly crowded.

Look really touristic and a litle bite expensive but It is a good place to go for having good times with friends. Not really traditional but the feeling there is good so... A funny thing is the starbuck, witch have been "camoufled" on "traditional" chines coffe... Haha 😂😂

The main village where the bus drops off is completely touristict. We were saddened that the food had much more Sichuan influence that we expected with a lot of spices which isn't in the traditional Hakka food. However as you venture out of the street the village is quiet and peaceful which could be worth it if you just want... More

Although this area is now extremely touristy (sometimes painfully) it is a good opportunity to see what the 'old' Chengdu looked like. This is a great place to buy souvenirs and try local food also with reasonable prices on offer.

If you have extra time to spare, the one drive outside of chengu's city limit might be worth your time. For Hakka fans or those who love ancient architecture, this is worthwhile. The thousand old street lined with allies & interesting facades are very picturesque. However, for others, parks or museums might be more enjoyable. The hutong is full of... More

You need at least 1 to 2 hours here. Great place for local food. Very neat historical street. Was worth the trip. Get a feel for old china.

Came to the Ancient Town via a local bus. The 219 bus acutally comes all the way to the old town, the bus station just being 100metres away from the entrance. Went souvenir hunting and we also had a fishy pedicure, which was a lot of fun for my kids.
