    Georgious old town

    Lovely old town, very pretty and a peak into past times. Lots of places to eat and buy souvenirs. A couple of hours is more than enough time required here

    A Rather Shabby Tourist Market

    Shangli prides itself as being one of Sichuan's best ancient towns, but somehow this place was very unconvincing. There are only a small number of truly ancient structures. Most noteworthy of these ar...

Additional Information


Shangli Ancient Town is located in Yucheng District of Ya'an City. The town is surrounded by mountains and rivers. Many of the Ming and Qing styles stilted buildings are preserved. 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. It is an important border of the Tang Dynasty and the location of the Office of Tea and Horse, as well as the place where the Red Army crossed in modern times.
