Old town will soon be under reconstruction, but for now most of the buildings are in poor shape. Near the drum tower you can find cheaper art shops than those near the main gate, and even further down this road, past the Drum tower you can find a meat market.

The drum tower is quite nice to look at but that is it. It is not lighted in the dark. However, if you walk though it you'll end up in nice little streets with a highly recommendable night market.

The drum tower is quite lovely in its dilapidated state and it is very atmospheric in the way it frames the street. It is at the quieter end of the old town and there were no other tourists when I visited. It's worth seeing, but it isn't going to make or break your visit to Luoyang.

When you have some spare time apart from visiting the Longmen Grottoes and the Shaolin Temple, you certainly should visit the old town of Luoyang with its Hutongs, Drum Tower and the Old Gate. The Old Town is actually a street of 2 km long, with some side roads. There is a beautiful Drum tower and the Old City Gate,... More
