Decided not to enter the village because of the unrealistically high admission. There are hundreds of diaolous around Kaiping and Zili Village does not worth the price. There is a path right next to the restroom that offers a view of the three buildings in...More

There are several beautiful buildings in a nice setting. Signs have English and the sight is easy to navigate. Farm fields surround the village and the setting is very nice. There is a free bus between here and Li Yuan.

Zili Village 自力村 has the largest collection of diaolou – mostly residential. It’s 11 km west of Kaiping. The residents, it is said, all have the surname Fang 方。Three of these are open to the public during the time that we visited – Mingshi Lou...More

My trip to Kaiping was a nice day out. The villages are nice and the information and facilities is very well set up and organized. Although the pictures can be rather pitoresk and romantic, to me these not even 100 year old houses are not...More

Having visited a fair share of UNESCO sites across China, I was expecting this one to be no exception. No doubt the historic buildings would be stunning but the facilities provided for tourists, toilets etc, would be poor. I was very pleasantly surprised. It is...More

Fulfilled my dreams of seeing reapseed flowers in China. Went there early April and caught the end season of Reapseed Flowers in bloom at Zili Village. One of the Diaolous here belonged to a fellow Malaysian.

And if you have a free day in Guangzhou, you will not regret, if you spend it in Kaiping. Let agree with private driver and you do not have to crowd with tourists.

We pay 78RMB to view this village. Personally, the buildings look similar but nothing special or beautiful. It is not worth spending 3 hour car drive to see this for less than an hour. There are places to get lunch inside the village, also so...More

I visited Zili Village. It was ok for an hour to look at the different buildings. There's nothing much else to do. The transport between the Diaolou sights wasn't that good either as they only have limited shuttle buses that aren't to regular.

We cycled there by bike, about 6-7km from Chikan/european style street. The towers on the rice fields of Zili village was stunning! Wish we spend more time here. It was picturesque in every angle.

I went there without an interpreter and received a lot of impressions. You can find historical information on the Internet, and for the rest did not really need a translator. The drivers at the station will show you a flyer... More
