We have arrived at Hongcun Village, an ancient village, over 800 years old and close to Mount Huangshan. It is known as 'The Chinese town in the pictures". Such a peaceful and beautiful old town. We also visited Xidi Village with its narrow streets, ancient homes with their fascinating furnishings, and antiques.
It's foggy which makes it difficult to see much of anything. We headed out and went up and down stairs for about 20 minutes. We then turned around and back to the hotel we went as it was much too foggy to see anything. We did see some of the granite peaks that pierced the sky but missed most of them. So be it. We still very much enjoyed this part of our travel experience. Following dinner in Huangshan we were driven to a theater where we then enjoyed a cultural performance. Once again we had seats in one of the front of the auditorium seats.
At the end of the day what really matters is that your loved ones are well, you’ve done your best and that you’re thankful for all you have.
South Anhui Province is known to travelers for its historic villages, famous Hongcun, Xidi, and many other unknown Xiuli, Bishan, Nanping, Guanlu. all of them were built in Ming and Qing dynasties in typical Hui-style: white walls, black tiles, standing by the water and elegantly mirrored in it. The comfortable beauty of such picture captivates many tourists.
There is a Chinese saying which says: once you have visited Yellow Mountain, there is no point in visiting any other. Yellow Mountain is truly an incredible place and even more beautiful in winter. Every year the mountain receives millions of tourists from all over the world. The beauty of Yellow Mountain lies in its endless changes. Most people, who visit Yellow Mountain, come back more than once to experience it in different seasons.
Yellow Mountain, or Huangshan Mountain, located in Huangshan city, Anhui province, is famed as the only scenic area that wins the title of World Cultural Heritage, Natural Heritage, and World Geological Park at the same time. Whenever you climb the mountain, you will be conquered by the breathtaking scenery, especially in springtime.
On the Christmas Eve of 2010, I started my business trip from Guilin to Huangshan (or Yellow Mountain, Mt. Huangshan). Although I lost the chance to have a Christmas party with my friends at home, I did not feel much regrettable, because this unforgettable trip made my Huangshan travel dream come true. With undiminished excitement for this Mt. Huangshan tour, I hereby would like to share my experience with you.
