“Nice surprise”

Zhuge Bagua Village of Lanxi
Ranked #1 of 18 things to do in Lanxi
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 February 2014

I went there in February and there was just one small group of Chinese tourists. I almost couldn't believe it. I know it's not a high season, but it was a welcome surprise. Just locals basically. When we went we didn't have to pay for the entrance fee, but if you wish to visit some historical objects and an exhibition or two, the admission is 100. However, many other similar buildings are open so I am not sure if paying 100 is a good idea. Probably the best traditional village I've seen so far in China. But don't be disappointed when you get there and see that it's surrounded by new buildings.

Many tourists for chinese new year but not too much. The architecture is so beautiful.
We saw also Daofeng temple and can have a very pleasant walk behind the temple.

This is one of the best places I've ever been. The village remained virtually the same as it was many decades ago. The alleys and streets are mystified to any first timer. Unlike other ancient villages and towns transformed into commercial havens, local residents still live there. It is truly an amazing feeling to spend a few hours in the village to mix with the local people and see their way of life.

This ancient village is one of the most beautiful in Zhejiang, a maze of cobblestone alleys and a great place to walk around and get lost in.
The beautiful pools in the village are a fantastic setting both for photography and watching the slow pace of the village life.
Highly recommended.

This ancient village is unique in that its layout is based on the feng shui principles of the Bagua ie 8 trigrams formation. The centrepoint is the ying and yang shaped pond and the various historic dwellings and halls encircle this in trigram formation. The entire village is virtually unspoiled by later architecture one of the most recent being the former police station from the 1912-1949 era. Most of the buildings are Ming or Qing era. The layout is maze-like so suggest you take a compass - two days there and we still didn't see (find) all we set out to see!
