We set out from Huangshan to Huizhou Ancient City. Because the bus was a little far away, it had been an hour's drive for two hours. The ancient city is semi-open, so you can not buy tickets, but tickets are not expensive, the student price is 50. In fact, the words of the government can go from the city wall and then go forward. Generally, no one checks the tickets, but from the main entrance, they must ask for tickets. The ancient city is very lively, different scenery, different architectural features. Later, I walked for half an hour to Yuliang, a town that had not been developed at all. It was very quiet. Going back by boat, the tranquility of mind is really beyond the reach of big cities.
Because of the time, we did not know and visit the ancient city of Huizhou in an all-round way. We just browsed the ancient city blocks roughly. No tickets or anything like that, just hanging around in the ancient city with little sugar! It didn't cost half a cent! The ancient city of Huizhou, together with Lijiang, Yunnan, Pingyao, Shanxi and Langzhong, Sichuan, is known as the four most well-preserved ancient cities in China. It is simple and elegant, with a pink wall and daiwa, typical Hui architecture, and has very historical characteristics. Xu Guoshifang is the most outstanding representative of Huizhou Shifang. Another feature of the ancient city is that there will be local people drying bacon on the wall there! ___________ Ha ha ha! Fortunately, I took a funny picture. Bamboo sticks were drying bacon on the city wall. Under the city wall, black and white eared cats were always there! _________ Traveling through the crowded ancient city, I found someone selling hawthorn cakes! Wow, it's delicious! In winter, the sun is warm, the candy is slipping and the Hawthorn cake is eating! It's very satisfying for me!
The ancient city of Huizhou is still beautiful after renovation and renovation. The walls and gates are well protected. Xu Guo archway is magnificent. Nanjiaolou has a special architectural form. It is an inverted trapezoidal gate with 24 pillars to support it. It is a large and well-functioned government office in Huizhou. It has been renovated and won the Luban Award. In ancient times, the performance of ascending halls and hearing cases was performed by the Hui School in Doushan Street. Folk houses, Tao Xingzhi Memorial Museum is worth seeing, increase knowledge! Overall, it's great!

It is the seat of Huizhou government in ancient times. It is also the birthplace of Huizhou culture and national quintessence Peking Opera. It is also the main birthplace of Huizhou merchants. It is also the main source of Huizhou ink and inkstone, the four treasures of the study.
The ancient city of Shexian was also the government of Huizhou in that year. Only when you have been here can you have a deeper understanding of Huizhou, Huizhou-style buildings and local customs. The deepest feeling of this trip is to see the rebuilt government of Huizhou after the demolition of the county government. Now there are too few officials who can retain the history and culture. We must give some praise to the county.
By the way, you can visit the ancient city of Huizhou. The train ticket is only 2 yuan. It's probably the cheapest train ticket in China. Because of the lack of publicity, there is no such perennial tourist booth as Xidi Hongcun or Fenghuang Ancient City Lijiang. Early in the morning, the train arrived at more than seven o'clock, and the bus arrived at the gate of the ancient city. It was quiet and quiet. Passing through the main road, we can see scattered open houses and shops. There are rows of morning exercisers in front of the county Yamen, playing Taiji neatly and uniformly. Simple streets, unique Hui-style buildings, deserve quiet while walking savor, well-known buildings also posted tips, you can scan two-dimensional code to add voice guide, try a circle, it is very useful. After eight o'clock, suddenly like falling into another world, suddenly noisy, bustling streets and lanes, commercial streets and temporary vegetable markets all kinds of shouts, local people have come out to activities, tourists have flocked to, suggested that the early free travel, experience the ancient city of Huizhou.
The ancient city of Huizhou is quite big. There is a big stone square in it, as well as the government of Huizhou. It's a bit worthless for tickets to be so expensive. In fact, no one checks tickets in the evening or in the morning, you can play for free. Of course, you can visit it from the side road during the day. Ancient city is still quite good. I recommend visiting it.
If it comes to the fact that southern Anhui does not know where to play and the holidays are not long enough for you to travel one by one, it is suggested that you come to the ancient city of Huizhou, which is called one of the four ancient cities in China together with Lijiang, Pingyao and Langzhong. It may not be worth visiting. Ancient-built in the Qin Dynasty, to the ancient city, to see archways, a magnificent eight-legged Xu Guo Shifang, to see the prosperity of Hui merchants in the Ming and Qing Dynasties 300 years, to Doushan Street, to see the three major sculpture arts, to Huizhou people to carefully appreciate, of course, you can wander among them, taste the local characteristics of snacks: stone barley, Mao tofu, stinky tofu, listen to local dialects, feel the inheritance of the Hui school to this day. Unique culture.
Huizhou is a dream land, but I have never hoped to be there. The ancient city of Huizhou was the seat of Huizhou Prefecture in Tang Xianzu's poems, Shexian County. This is the first batch of famous historical and cultural cities in China, and together with Lijiang, Pingyao and Langzhong, it is known as the four ancient cities in China. There are many historic sites, rich in history and humanities, and landscape paintings are generally beautiful. It's worth visiting.
