Kaiping Diaolou and Villages, Kaiping

4.1
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Kaiping
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.

  • 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。
  • Come and go, but dirty, I'm such a party pooper
