Step back in time and visit the World Heritage Site of Hongcun Ancient Village, a charming village that dates back to the Ming and Qing dynasties. Situated in the foothills of the Yellow Mountain, the tiny settlement is renowned for its well-preserved Anhui architecture and the marvelous arrangement of its houses, bridges, and canals, said to resemble the shape of an ox when viewed from above. Stroll the narrow roads, hang out by the lake, and enjoy the laid-back, peaceful atmosphere, reminiscent of the old China in the distant past.
