Very pretty small town 20 minutes from TongCun (the town down the hill from Huangshan Mountains). It’s worth a visit if you are spending several days in this region. We stayed at the Huangshan Hot Springs hotel and hired a car with the help from...More

Spent an afternoon in the ancient village of Xidi - it is about 15Km from Hongcun, where we were staying. Xidi is about 800-900 years old and I suppose the architecture has not changed much in that time and its heritage is preserved by UNESCO....More

...that is arguably even more impressive than Hongcun due to its larger size and less polished nature. What it lacks in 'sights', it makes up for in beautiful courtyards which are now guesthouses and still lived-in old residences, all incredibly ornate in decoration. Even in...More

Smaller than Hongcun. Less commercialised. Like hongcun, village is well reserved with free tour guides in Mandarin only I think. The tour is very educational.
