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.

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.

We visited here in the afternoon and found the streets, shops and stalls to be very interesting. Lots of unusual things to purchase.

It's definitely very touristy, but it's a nifty place to wander through. There are modern art galleries at the entrance, and then you get into the more historic section. Great for shopping for gifts to take home, and there are a few restaurants that offer a really good lunch. Definitely recommend it!

It's a must visit if u enjoy Street food as it's a never ending stretch of old buildings and traditional snacks and street food. Everything from fear factor types of food like pig snouts and rabbit heads to snacks like desserts and sweets that would bring a smile to the whole family, there is something for everyone. It's near the... More
