Hui style architecture, Huangshan
We will drive you to Yixian County to visit the dreamland villages of Hongcun Village and Nanping village with centuries-old buildings. Those buildings are originated from the history story. The Yixian fellows have played an important role in the Huizhou business sector. The successful merchants and high-rank officials gathered enough power and wealth. They came back to build their houses to show their respect for their ancestors and show off their wealth and position. But the strict hierarchy of society was also shown in the construction of household. At that time, only the emperor has the right to build the grandeur building as seen in the Forbidden City. So the merchants could only choose the best materials and plan most sophisticated workmanship to show off their wealth and position. Now, you still can see those buildings existence as before.
The most fascinating and astonishing thing about the Hongcun village is its design. It was designed and constructed in the shape of a buffalo. The Leigang Hill at the west end is like a buffalo’s head, with two big trees (one maple /poplar and one ginkgo, both are more than 500 years old) at the entrance like two horns, four stone bridges across the Jieyang River are like the four legs of the buffalo, the blocks of ancient houses in the village make up the body, while a long stream of 1000 meters winding among the houses is just like the bowel of the buffalo, a pond in the shape of a half-moon is the stomach, and a larger pool in the south of the village (Nanhu Lake) is the belly of the buffalo. The local people used their industry and intelligence to design and construct such a buffalo-shape village.
And then you will be transferred to Shexian County to visit the Tangyue Archways and appreciate another kind of Chinese culture. In the late afternoon, you will be transferred back to Huangshan city and have rest at the hotel. (B, L)
