Day 1

Our local English-speaking guide and skilled driver will pick you up at your Tunxi hotel at around 8:30am (or your convenient time) to make an excursion to the nearby old villages.

The first stop is Xidi, a stronghold for prosperous merchant Hu clan dating to AD 1047. The thoughtful intricate-carvings interior contrasting with the simple exterior of black tiled roof and white walls deserves a closer and throughout exploration to find out the hidden Chinese ancestors' life wisdom. The decorative arch named Huwenguang Paifang, notable ancestral halls like Diji Hall, Zhuimu Hall can be checked out among the maze of flagstone lanes.

Then drive to Hongcun, a stronghold for another wealthy Wang clan. Here a leisure village stroll can be rewarded with the idyllic portrait of bridges, lakeside views, winding lanes and old traditional halls. The village's original ox-shape water systems, flushing water through the village for the purpose of the fire-proofing and irrigating again exemplifies the ancient locals' living intelligence.

Make a 40 min driving transfer for Shexian. Tour fabulously decorated Xuguofang Archway with 12 guiding lions seated around and bas-relief carvings of mystical creatures. Then move to Doushan Street, a residential area with Huizhou-style houses.

Continue the trip to a tranquil port village-Yuliang village for the cobbled alley Yuliangjie and its museum, firewalls and flagstone Yuliang Dam hanging on for over millennium year.

Conclude intraday tour by transferring back to your Tunxi hotel.
