HUANGSHAN, China–(BUSINESS WIRE)–When it comes to the most beautiful ancient villages in China, Anhui is the only answer, especially “Hongcun”. Hongcun, at the foot of Mount Huangshan, famous all around the world, is a peculiar ancient village with cow-shaped water system, which is known as “the village in Chinese painting”.
Walking through Hongcun, ancient dwellings with white walls and black tiles that can be seen everywhere are the model of Huizhou ancient dwellings, among which there are more than 140 well-preserved ancient buildings of Ming and Qing Dynasties. The towering horsehead wall is the structural feature of Huizhou ancient buildings, which is not only beautiful but also has fire prevention function. It forms a beautiful landscape in Hongcun together with the Ancient Chinese Wingmuts of more than 500 years old, the reflection of the moon in the water and the extremely skillful carvings.
In addition to tourists, there are many photographers and painters coming to Hongcun for sketch drawing from nature. Whatever is being done, sketch drawing, watercolor, photos or films, the artists are wandering in this picturesque place where the first Chinese blockbuster Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon that won an Oscar, was filmed.
In Hongcun, we feel Huizhou culture during the day and enjoy the large-scale live cultural performance Hongcun Aju in the evening. From the perspectives of a Huizhou woman “Aju”, the play is really an audio-visual and cultural feast showing Huizhou women’s virtuous nature with tenacious and brave characeristics with modern sound, light and electricity skills.
Hongcun, the village in the painting, invites you to come to Anhui for an appointment.
