  • It is the most beautiful old villages in Anhui, deserving to be classified in the world heritage of Unesco. Surprisingly, the majority of visitors are Chinese. We only met that very few foreigners. Two to three hours to go through the village.

  • 从上海出发自驾5个多小时就抵达“宏村”,白墙黑瓦典型的徽派古建筑,拍出来的照片就像一幅水墨画的感觉,最有名的“月沼”“南湖”有很多学生在此写生,阳光明媚的白天,湖水清澈倒影成像,游客不少,特别是好多长枪短炮的摄影爱好者,每天在湖边等待落日、等待晨曦。虽说这个季节秋日的风光已远,也无法看到红色的、黄色的秋景。但只要你有一双发现美的眼睛,就一定能找到它独有的景,也一定能感受它的美好。 
  • 在各种摄影大片上看到徽式建筑,觉得非常美丽因此驱车三百多公里过来一睹芳容,到了以后感到比较失落,商业化已十分严重除了客栈就是餐馆,家家户户都不肯错过此商机,建筑好多都有翻新的痕迹已经是整容后的古镇了。个人觉得古镇还是江浙的漂亮,至少没必要专程来此游玩!那相机拍了几张,手机就照了这么一张,是月池边,跟大导演拍出来还是有些差距
