Xinchang Ancient Town|This obscure ancient town in Chengdu makes me no longer envy Jiangnan

|This obscure ancient town in Chengdu makes me no longer envy Jiangnan. Everyone knows that when you come to 'Dayi', you must go to the ancient town called 'Anren'. But little did they know that Dayi also has a beautiful obscure ancient town called 'Xinchang Ancient Town', which is much less popular than Anren Ancient Town, so it is often overlooked by many people. Xinchang Ancient Town was established in the Eastern Han Dynasty and prospered in the Jiajing period of the Ming Dynasty. It is one of the famous historical and cultural towns on the ancient tea-horse road. Xinchang is also known as 'the last Sichuan basin', and it is the largest and best-preserved ancient town in Sichuan. Compared with the ancient towns in Jiangnan, the ancient towns in Sichuan lack the misty and worldly charm under the rain, but the unconventional Sichuan ancient towns have simple folk customs and also have the most rustic worldly charm of this land. When I walked into Xinchang, I really didn't envy Wuzhen so much. There are also small bridges running across the old streets, and there is also rolling green smoke on the green tiles and white walls. There are also market hawking sounds echoing in the ears. It also has the beauty of the ancient Jiangnan. There are many osmanthus trees on the side of the road, and you can smell the strong fragrance of osmanthus now. Address: Xinchang Ancient Town, Dayi, Chengdu, Sichuan 🚗: About an hour's drive from downtown Chengdu
