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 fill their pockets by offering not that necessary services (as foretelling the future or making... More

We visited here on return from our overnight stay at Mount Huang Shan with Odyssey Tours and I must say it was very worthwhile. Crowds were manageable and the preservation authentic. Administration , schools and temples gave a glimpse of how advanced Chinese civilization was during this period. The streets carried a wealth of artisan activities largely carried out by... More

Compare to other village such as Hong and Xidi village, this is less commercial activities and less crowded. This allow you to experience the village and their residence life in depth.

Very cool and informative window into the past. Lots of preserved old buildings all in this one village. Very "worth it" to go see.

Our local guide drove us here, and I was happily surprised. The village is small, but it felt genuine and it was less crowded with tourists. The surroundings were beautiful.

I must say after reading the reviews, I was more than slightly disappointed with my visit. Perhaps it was partly because of what appears to be a fair bit of road works ongoing during my visit, but even if I discount this inconvenience, my overall judgement is that this place needs to do more to make it more visitor-friendly.

Chengkan's advantage comparing to the other villages is that it is less touristy - without the tourists shops and overpriced restaurants, and you can truly enjoy the atmosphere of the ancient Chinese village. Also people still live in the houses and you can visit them. The entrance fee is 107RMB.

This was our favourite village we visited, whilst it was drizzling with rain we enjoyed every minute. It was quiet devoid of tourists and most of the time it was only us walking down the alleyways and looking inside the buildings. The entrance is spectacular, beautiful bridges over lotus filled ponds, we couldn't stop taking photos, the locals extremely friendly... More
