  • Hong Cun is the emblem of the building in addition to the most famous one outside the Wuyuan, in addition to the village to retain intact Huizhou building and intricate slate path, as well as the representative of Hong Cun's scenic spots and the essence, that is, the month of the marsh, appeared in almost all of the town publicity title photos. Whether it is morning or night lights, here are very beautiful. Every day there are many art school students and painting enthusiasts come here to sketch, a variety of hotels and small shops are also a lot of kinds of advice to stay here one night, slowly walk slowly look, savor the essence here.
