Overview – Huanglongxi Ancient Town

Huanglongxi is a historic Chinese town located about 50 km from Chengdu in China’s Sichuan Province. It is named after the Huanglong River that flows through it.

The town is over 1,700 years old and restored to retain its rustic charm, with ancient cobbled streets, temples, and wharves and houses along its curving alleys. Most of these shops have turned into souvenir stores.

The majority of the buildings in Huanglongxi date back to the Qing Dynasty. The town features several temples and some of the well-known ones include Zhenjiang Temple, Chaoyin Temple, and Gulong Temple. For this reason, most of the filmmakers choose to shoot exterior scenes of period movies in this town. Temple fairs are organized in Huanglongxi on the ninth day of the sixth and ninth lunar month.
