The ancient painting township scenic spot is located in Bihu Town and Dagangtou Town, Liandu District, Lishui City, 20 kilometers away from Lishui City. The core blocks include Dagangtou, Shantou, Pingdi and Baoding. The historical and cultural heritage is deep and the atmosphere strong. The scenery on both sides of the Lancang River in the scenic area, as well as the millennium ancient banyan tree group are very interesting.

This is still the hometown of oil painting. The reason why it is called painting township is because there are famous Lishui Barbizon Painting School inside and outside the province, and there is Lishui Barbizon Exhibition Hall and Lishui Oil Painting Institute. The ancient painting township exhibition hall, the ancient painting township branch school, etc., as well as a professional art sketching creation base - "water production team on the water side."

When you arrived at the scenic spot, there were already a lot of people. The temporary parking lot was already full of cars, but compared with the scene when you left in the afternoon, it would have been quiet! When purchasing tickets at the ticket sales area at the door, I found that online shopping can be cheaper, decisive ordering, and can be used immediately, without reservation, very convenient. Guiyu and Drawing Township are divided into two scenic spots, one is the ancient scenic spot including Tongjiyu and Shantou Village, which is located at the Songyin River on the north bank of the Minjiang River. The painting township scenic spot is located in Dagangtou Town on the south bank of the Minjiang River. . So there are two imports.

The weather is really good, the sky is clean, and I haven't seen the blue sky and white clouds for a long time. The scenery on both sides of the Lancang River is particularly charming. The water people on the banks of Dagangtou Town and the ancient banyan tree clusters form a beautiful landscape painting. The ancient painting town is very suitable for friends who like photography. There are many best photography points signs in the scenic area, which can guide the photographers to shoot good works.
