Longmen Ancient Town has pretty much everything a tourist could want in a small town - cobblestone streets, narrow lanes, old buildings, ancient temples and a way of life that seems unchanged from centuries ago.
Many of the buildings in the town were built more than 300 years ago.
More than 90 percent of the town's people have the surname Sun. They are descendants of the 3rd century warlord Sun Quan (AD 182-252), King of the Wu State (AD 222-280) of the Three Kingdoms (AD 220-280).
