The ancient town is not very big, and visitors can feel it in the layout in the shape of the word "井" in the ancient town ("井" means well, take "water in the well" to prevent fire). Surrounded by flowing water, the ancient town faces the field’s rolling hills and forms an idyllic landscape along with the surrounding ancient trees, streams and bridges. The first name of Shangli Ancient Town was “Luosheng,” which is an important stopover before entering Ya'an, on the Linqiong Ancient Trail of the Southern Silk Road.

Trip Moments

As a "Chuanxi throat, Tibet portal, ethnic corridor", Ya'an has become a must-see for me and countless travelers. Whether it is going to Tibet or traveling around, Ya'an has become a must. I really like some small and fresh hostels. Located in the middle of the Yashan district of Ya'an, I am showing such a clean and simple but stylish hostel. When you walked into the hall, the two bookshelf greeted you and looked at the books in front of you. There was an illusion that you came to a library. According to the staff of the peers, every book here is carefully selected by the boss, and friends who love reading must not miss it. The rest area is surrounded by green plants, flowers are embellished, and the colored sofa backs look at everything that is so vibrant. The designer cleverly opened a small window on the wall, and the outside scenery also showed it. Guests can sit on the sofa at will, or talk with friends or other guests, so that casual and comfortable time is like feeling at home. The other side of the hall is the restaurant, the restaurant facing the street, there are always pedestrians passing by in a hurry, in stark contrast to the laid-back interior. The ubiquitous bookshelf can feel the charm of the book even if you don't leave home. If it is not a meal, reading here is more quiet than in the lobby. When you walk out of the hall, you will see that the entire yard is surrounded by three sides. The front and side are made up of rooms, and the left side of the yard is Mengding Mountain, so most of the side rooms are mountain view rooms.
