The Huangshan area has a good number of beautiful old villages but if you only see one it should be Chengkan. It is a big village with plenty of old mansions, canals, ancestral halls, a beautiful pond and compared to other villages it still feels...More

a different place to visit, but every shop is a junk shop loaded with tourist items all of little to no value. Good food in the many restaurants. overall a nice place to spend a day, one must visit the Buddhist temple, is beautiful

Very serene location in the ancient village with the lake views and lotus plants in the water. Narrow alleys past many artisan shops with beautiful carvings and well worth a short visit.

安徽 architecture has been unique in tradition & one will perhaps draw reference to the blockbuster, 臥虎藏龍. More importantly, Chengkan is the last remaining township in today's China that was built according to the Bagua (eight trigrams) some 300 years ago. Since the village itself...More

We had a guide called Tony from Top China Tours who had an excellent knowledge of the place and good English. You need to know what you are looking at and the history is important to understand. The main building is like a maze. It...More

Found the ancient buildings to be well worth the effort of visiting. Lots to see especially if you are interested in history. Easy walking but comfortable shoes recommended.

Te first thing you'll notice is there aren't as many tourists here so that's very key in the experience of this village. The architecture is quite astonishing here but the background shots aren't as nice as other villages. There also aren't as many shops and...More

When we were there on a Tuesday afternoon, the tourist density was relatively low. The first 'half' of the visit gets you to the part of the village that, like a film set, has been preserved, historically relevant, but is not a living community with...More

We visited this place after visiting Huang Shan. Place is very eye-pleasing, offering both architectural and natural beauty. Due to less tourist flows, you can really see daily life of village folks in here. People were very friendly, but some of them still tried to...More
