Kaiping Diaolou and Villages, Kaiping
(4.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kaiping Diaolou and Villages displays multi-story houses built about 100 years ago in a mixture of Chinese and Western styles. Chinese workers who went abroad returned to their homeland inspired by Western aesthetics and built the houses, which feature small and narrow windows and doors, as well as watchtowers, providing great views of the surrounding area. Despite their Western stylings, the buildings remain in harmony with the landscape. Stay in the village, which offers plenty of information boards in English, to enjoy some delicious, home-grown local food.

  • 去开平出差专门趁周末去了开平碉楼,在农田中散落着一栋栋民国建筑,很有特色,还是让子弹飞的拍摄地,从当时的建筑来看,可看出当时确实动乱,匪患严重,窗子都有装铁栅栏,还有二楼地板上正对一楼大门口有个孔,据说是可以观察来人还可以给他的头来一枪。。。。突然有种头顶发冷的感觉哈哈哈

  • Very traditional architecture.
  • 穿梭400年前的文化歷史 華僑之鄉如何離鄉別井到東南亞賣力 幸運的話能衣錦還鄉 將國外建築文化 習慣帶回開平築起數層高別墅。由於富人聚居亦引來不法之徒光顅 故將建築物防護措施加入成今天的碉樓文化 也成為世界文化遺產!
  • 碉樓內的物品古蹟保存得很好,完全可想像到主人當時的生活環境和品味。另外,家具和擺設有點歐陸風情,中西文化遺產景點。
  • 慕名而去,但脏乱差让我很扫兴
