Here once an important marketplace since Qing dynasty, full of souvenirs stalls, restaurants and shops. There are plenty of tea houses and places for eat and relax. Also check out Gulong temple and Chaoyin temple for their ancient, beribboned banyan.

China has plenty of ancient towns. This one is in Chengde. It's has old buildings conserved and lease out to businesses. I felt the whole place became too commercialised and it's has lost the touch and feel of an old town. But it's cleaned and well maintained. There are lots of restaurants and shops selling same old stuffs, eg local... More

I have been to several 'ancient towns' in China and personally I think this one is most memorable. Most other ancient towns would be frequented by backpackers etc. with bars and western style restaurants. This one is quite traditionally Chinese. The repaired and reconstructed ancient buildings still maintain their old time glory with beautiful carving and decorations. The streets are... More

A very beautiful place with some ancient buildings and a clean and clear stream flowing through. There are a lot of shops around selling food and souvenirs. Great place except for the toilet facilities. There is a courtyard there where you can watch a face changing mask show etc to while away the time.

It took an hour from Chengdu Xinnanmen Bus Station, but still had to walk 5-10mins to enter the ancient town. Admission is free. Its worth the visit, though the town is small, it is very well preserved. There is heaps of places to eat and buy souvenirs. Found a place that make a one strand noodle that fills the bowl,... More

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

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...
