What to Expect
In the morning, your professional tour guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to Chuandixia village. As an ancient village, this is characterized by old houses, colorful historical relics, unique folk customs and a mountainous landscape. The village is located to the west of Beijing and is well-known for over 600 Ming and Qing dynasty houses, which are well-preserved.
The village was built following the terrain of the Longtou mountain slopes. From the top point of the mountain range, the courtyards were arranged in a radial direction down to the foot. Inside the courtyards, you will find many delicate brick, stone and wood carvings on the roofs, eaves, walls and windows. Chuandixia is designated a site of cultural significance in China. It is an ideal place to take photos, to walk around peacefully and to enjoy a typical homemade lunch in a courtyard house. After your visit, the guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel.
