What travelers say:

Some friends don't rate Lizhou Ancient Town very well, I think maybe because they expect too much from him, I define this attraction as a place to take you back to the '90s. It is not really a sightseeing spot, because he is not really developed, all residents live in peace here, enjoy everyday life. Before you walk into the old town, you can feel a local food market with local features and local fruits through which residents live and play areas. I especially like the name of a teahouse called Xianchaju, everyone like the gods live a happy life here you don't have to worry about food, clothing, shelter, because every two steps will have what you need, such as missing something, The barbershop's masters will smile at you, like handmade doughnuts, and you can see real handicrafts. Of course there are many ancient buildings and traces left here, but it's almost destroyed.

Additional Information


Historic Lizhou Town was once known as “Suyi County.” It is located in the north of Xichang City. Historic Lizhou Town has a long and storied history as one of the ancient stops used by yak caravans on the Southern Silk Road. Known as the northern gate of Xichang, the town is an important place for political, economic and cultural exchanges among all local ethnic groups. Featured sites within the town include the remains of three ancient cities and some Neolithic ruins. Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, Zhu De, Liu Bocheng, Nie Rongzhen and many other important members of the older generation of proletarian revolutionaries both fought and lived in Lizhou. At the famous Lizhou meeting, the Central Red Army officially proposed the term "Long March" when making the decision—of great historical significance—to take the long journey north to Northern Shaanxi. Lizhou is a famous town which holds special significance in the history of the Long March.
