Classic Yellow Mountain & Ancient Huizhou Villages 4-Day Trip
In Huangshan, other than the Yellow Mountain, its Huizhou-style villages are good places for tourists to see the rural China that has existed for so many centuries but is now disappearing. Xidi is an old village cluster where 124 traditional houses remain. The highlight here is the Huizhou-style predominant architectures that make it a black-and-white village: white walls, dark tiles, horse-head gables, stone drums or mirrors and interior-showing courtyards. It was the style favored by the local merchant class. Hongcun, about 15 km away from Xidi, has several of the same features as Xidi but distinguishes itself by the pools and narrow streets. It is a bit difficult to navigate in the town, as it possesses a strange shape like a water buffalo. Moon Pond, a crescent-shaped pool surrounded by houses is outstanding in Hongcun as well as a number of big houses open to the public here. Featured in carved wooden beams, those residences passed from the old times are so different from the whitewashed stone exteriors of themselves. In the year of 1999 Xidi and Hongcun altogether were listed in the Catalog of World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.
