Hongcun village (宏村)

A charming traditional Huizhou village, Hongcun is best known as the film site of the Oscar-winning film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. You'll be able to bike around the village with your guide and also visit a local family where you'll have the chance to gain a better understanding of the life and traditions of the local people.

Xidi Village (西递)

Along with Hongcun, Xidi Village was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000. These two ancient towns are the best representations of local Huizhou-style residences in southern Anhui. Xidi dates back to the Northern Song Dynasty and features narrow cobblestone lanes and around 124 ancient residences from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It's also renowned for the exquisite carvings which can be found on door frames, lattice walls, columns and beams.
