    Default The ancient Loulan Kingdom - "exotic" site of some wuxia adventures.

    In western China was once an ancient kingdom named Loulan. Today, it is a desolate, mostly unpopulated desert wasteland, but during the era of the Han Dynasty, an independent kingdom flourished there. It became the setting for a few wuxia stories, which typically depicted Loulan Kingdom as a combination of Han Chinese and Central Asian culture.

    What were some wuxia stories which had the Loulan kingdom as the setting, or what were some stories where it was mentioned?

    While I'm not sure about novels, TVB's 1979 CHOR LAU HEUNG series and 1985 RETURN OF LUK SIU FUNG series had some action set out there.
