Overview:

“No mountain near or far is comparable to Yellow Mountain, and after a visit to it, no other mountain is worth visiting”. This is an old Chinese saying which has been proved by millions of travelers who had visited the Huangshan (Yellow Mountain). You will have a leisure tour on the mountain to admire its archetypal granite peaks, twisted pines, beautiful cloud sea and fabulous sunrise in good-weather days. After the memorable Huangshan Mountain tour, you will be taken to visit two remarkable ancient villages – Hongcun and Xidi which are the best examples of ancient Huizhou-style architecture and listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Attractions: Tunxi, Hongcun Village, Xidi Village
Meal: Not included

Today, you are going to visit two remarkable ancient villages – Hongcun and Xidi which are the best examples of ancient Huizhou-style architecture, and listed in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Quite different from other traditional ancient villages in China, the layout, landscape, architectural form, decoration, and construction techniques all retain the original features Hongcun and Xidi are much more exquisite and grandiose, because they were built by successful officials or merchants returning home from official appointments and business.

Hongcun, originated during Song Dynasty (960-1276), is praised as the most beautiful village in China. It is famous as the ancient village in the Chinese painting. The most beautiful sites are the Moon Lake, the crescent-like pond surrounded by several grand dwellings, and Southern Lake Academy, a private ancient school served for the village. One interesting fact is that the whole village is arranged in the shape of an ox. The famous Oscar-winner film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was filmed in Hongcun.

Xidi Village is only about 10km from Hongcun. Its well-spaced houses with white walls, elegant decorations and black tiles are surrounded by mountains, which makes Xidi an ideal place to paint from life. Xidi is a magnificent villager of imperial officers. It contributed about 130 government officials, some of whom were dignitaries in the imperial courts, during Ming and Qing Dynasties. Currently, there are still 124 well-preserved ancient dwelling with unique style in the village.

After the sightseeing, it’s time for departure. Your tour guide and driver will escort you to catch your flight/train to the next destination. Our service ends.
