Looking at the Kaiping Diaolou, thinking that the ancestors did everything they could to defend against bandits and created characteristic houses. Many of the towers here are deserted, and only a few have been repaired and opened to the outside world. Many of them are exquisite and have good lighting.
Because I bought a package of five scenic spots in Kaiping Diaolou, it is limited to two days to visit, and it is convenient to come to Jinjiang in the next morning. There is a green highland in front of the residential complex, and there is only a good view of the Diaolou on the station. Currently one is open Diaolou can be climbed high and far away, and there are few tourists and only villagers.
Among the several scenic spots in the Diaolou Package, this is the farthest away from other scenic spots and the urban area. The traffic is not very convenient, so there are very few tourists and the environment is very quiet. The three watchtowers in the village, especially the Ruishilou known as "the first building of Kaiping", and the very French blue-scented Shengfeng building, are all very European-style watchtowers, which are relatively rare among the many watchtowers in Kaiping. Yes, although it is a bit far away, I would recommend it if I have time.
The Diaolou group in Kaiping is a world heritage site. Among them are scattered in many corners of Kaiping. Among them, Jinjiangli is far away from the city and forms a corner of its own. The most distinctive feature in the interior is the Ruishi Tower, which is a Diaolou. The tallest and most magnificent one, it is worth visiting and should not be missed.
Jinjiangli is a relatively distant scenic spot. By car, there is only a very narrow bicycle road. Fortunately, there is no car, or I really don’t know what to do with the two roof cows. It's good to park casually in the yard. Ruishi Tower is charged separately, but it is not open at all now. Only the two buildings next to it can go up. When I was crossing the small road in the middle of the house, a vicious dog suddenly rushed out, and I was startled. The key is that there is no way to detour, but to run quickly. so horrible.
