Luodai Ancient Town in Longquanyi District is the largest Hakka community in western China.
Luodai Ancient Town is in Longquanyi District in eastern Chengdu. It is the largest Hakka community in western China, where old-style constructions and cultural relics are preserved.
The town was founded during the period of Three Kingdoms (220 - 280) and, according to the legend, the Shuhan emperor Liu Shan dropped his jade belt into a well when he passed through this small town and thus the town was named ‘lost belt’ (落带). It later evolved into its current name (洛带) with the same pronunciation but different characters.

Luodai Ancient Town is one of the five major Hakka settlements in China. Three or four hundred years ago, a group of Hakka people moved to Luodai from coastal cities. It has since grown into the largest community in western China for Hakka people.
