Hongcun is also known as Gongcun. It is said that in the first year of Shaoxing in Southern Song Dynasty, Wang Yanji, the ancestor of Hongcun, suffered from fire. From Qishu Village in Yixian County, the whole family went up the stream and found a place to live and work in peace and contentment similar to the ancestor's testimony under Leigang Mountain - "a clear spring that never dries up, surrounded by two rivers, in the ancestor's dream, cattle was the symbol of wealth, and water was the protection of Fuze's descendants. Certificate, Wang Yanji built thirteen houses for the house, is the beginning of Hongcun. Later, Wang's ancestors planned the village as a cattle-shaped village - "chiseling clear spring for ponds, drawing water from Xixi River as a supplement, expanding it into moonmarsh , becoming the imaginary cow stomach , through two outlets, they built a vertical and horizontal interlaced Shenzhen and Xishuizhen, with a total length of more than 1,300 meters, to every household in the village. Shuizhen was called Niuchang Shuizhen's water channel. After use, all of them converged to the south of the village, known as the South Lake of Bull Belly and so on. Hongcun Town's location, layout, the beautiful scenery of Hongcun are directly related to water. It is an ancient village which has been carefully planned. The planning and design of man-made water system inside and outside the village is quite exquisite and ingenious. Experts evaluate Hongcun as a "human landscape, natural landscape complement each other, which is a rare village with detailed planning in ancient times in the world". It is called "a pearl of Chinese tradition" by Chinese and foreign architectural experts and "a living textbook for the study of Chinese ancient water history".
For me, hongcun was better than huangshan. the ticket is 104 yuan to enter (valid for 3 days) and not only is the city and lake beautiful, there are lots of shops to buy handmade shoes, clothes, baijiu and mijiu. be aware if you are booking a hotel inside the ‘hongcun scenic area’ then you will be buying to ticket to enter hongcun before you get to your hotel. I’d 100% trying 臭鳜鱼 the smelly mandarin fish and buying a litre of 米酒 the rice wine (approx 8%) as both are delicious!
Hongcun Village which is a small village in Anhui province offers a lot to explore in term of culture and history. What l likes best about this place includes its narrow cobblestone paved lanes winding around boxy whitewashed buildings with pointed black tiled roofs offer a pleasant place. Here you can spend a few unhurried days in a beautiful part of rural China. Several larger residences reflect the wealth of its one time resident in the ornate carvings on every beam and column. Many of the buildings date back to the Ming and Qing dynasties and are regarded as the best examples of typical Anhui-style architecture.
amazing place to stroll for about 1.5-2 hoursthe ticket was a bit pricey but inside there is still good view. the small pond inside Honncun village is very stunning. also, the bridge you see right when you enter the gate, is beautiful too. inside Hongcun village, there is a little cafe, selling postcard with postal service — it’s a good memory for a traveller who loves sending postcards like me :)
l love this place so much! The feeling walking and exploring this village is amazing. It’s old and has a unique culture and history. l also love the architecture there. It is not a huge place, a day there would be great, but sleeping a night in the village is better as you can try some food and in the morning you can also enjoy a coffee as there is a coffee bar at the Moon Lake. l was impressed by this place, and l would love to visit it agan.
Hongcun is really a place you don't want to go after. We are driving to Hongcun. We have to say that the parking lot is just in front of the entrance of the scenic spot. It takes no effort to walk to the scenic spot. Because of the hot weather, we don't go out until 4 or 5 p.m. It's all small businesses run by the villagers. There is no deafening music at night. It's quiet and quiet as an ancient village should be. The alleys in the village. There are many, but there are clear signs for important scenic spots. It's great! __________ It's recommended to get up early and watch the sunrise. It's beautiful.

The ticket is cheap and can be used for three days. Small handicrafts are also cheap. It is suggested to buy daily necessities and snacks in the snack street across the river. There is a supermarket. Like the ordinary price, it is a good pit in the scenic spot.
Hongcun is the unexpected joy of this trip. This trip did not have it. Because of the weather, the second day of Huangshan became a day, so I realized a dream. Hongcun is mostly rainy weather, the most beautiful spring and summer, the willows on both sides of the river are flying, and the buildings on both sides of the lake are reflected. If the weather is good, there are many Sketchers here to paint. We were going to meet a light rain, which is also in line with the rain and smoke emblem ink. Hongcun was listed on the World Heritage List in 2000. It is the most representative village in Hui architecture. From the whole appearance, Hongcun is a peculiar ox-shaped ancient village. The more famous scenic spots are Tachuan and Mukeng Zhuhai, South Lake and Moonmarsh. This is the famous South Lake. There is a small bridge in the middle. Her name is Painting Bridge. The film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Li Mubai leads a horse across the bridge, and the collision between Hongcun and the film adds vividness to the scenery. (This is a photograph taken by a rider "chasing after") in a quiet lane, walking on the bluestone road, listening to the dripping rain, my heart was quiet and happy, forgetting the mundane noise. Find a moment of tranquility, Xiaoyuan Mountain, Daimei Shallow, a few wisps of blue smoke and jade screen exhibition. The moon marshes are surrounded by silk walls and Daiwa, and the Qingshi Road is paved all around. Walking around here, you can see exquisite wood carvings, stone carvings and brick carvings. In fact, the ceiling visits Hongcun. Although the beautiful scenery is fascinating and intoxicating, I still value its cultural connotation more. Nanhu Academy, which can be called Shanghongcun Culture Context, is one of the highlights. Huizhou businessmen in the south of the Yangtze River tend to integrate reading with being an official and doing business. One of the characteristics of Huizhou businessmen is "ten villages, do not repeat reading", "Jia is good at Confucianism". Hongcun has two selling points, one is tea, the other is pancakes. Tea has Huangshan Maofeng, Taiping Monkey Queen. Huangshan pancakes are delicious snacks. Plum dried vegetables are served with diced meat and a layer of crisp skin is added outside.
Hongcun is one of the first 12 famous historical and cultural villages in the country. It is a national key cultural relics protection unit, Anhui Patriotic Education Base, 5A National Scenic Area, known as "Picture Village". By 2014, the whole town has well preserved more than 140 Ming and Qing Dynasty dwellings. The main attractions are : Nanhu Chunxiao, Academy reading, moor wind lotus, Niuchang Shuizhen, Shuangxi Yingbi, Tingqian ancient trees, Leigang evening photos, etc. 。 Hongcun has unparalleled ancient water systems - Shuizhen, Yuehu and Nanhu. It is called the "Chengzhitang Hall, Peidetang Hall" of the Folk Palace Museum. Huizhou merchant's hometown "Sanli Tang, Yuexutang" preserves complete ancient academy "Nanhu Academy" and other important cultural relics. The buildings in Hongcun Town are mainly residential buildings and private gardens, as well as public facilities such as academies and ancestral halls. The building group is relatively complete. All kinds of buildings pay attention to exquisite carving, wood carving, brick carving and stone carving, which have high artistic value. Most of the streets and alleys in the village are built near the water, and the residential buildings are also surrounded by the moonmarsh layout. Residences are mostly second-class courtyards. Some people also introduce Shenzhen water into their houses to form water courtyards and open up fish ponds. Hongcun ancient residential complex is a typical representative of Hui architecture. There are more than 440 well-preserved residential buildings in Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is suggested that the whole day is the best time to play. If you can live in the scenic area, the residential buildings in the scenic area are characteristic and inexpensive. Especially those who can provide local meals, it is worth a try. The night scenery of Hongcun is also very beautiful. The most beautiful moment is in the early morning. It is a paradise for photographers. All must stay overnight.
Hongcun is really good, at least in my opinion, beautiful scenery, although it can not be compared with some well-known scenic spots, but it has its own characteristics, like Jasper in a small family, need to be savored carefully. Here you will feel very comfortable, the local conditions and people are really good. Whether the villagers, security, staff are super good, the villagers will take the initiative to greet me, because the lanes are complex like a labyrinth, they will often get lost, the villagers will enthusiastically lead the way; I ride a shared bicycle to see "Aju" performance in the evening, although there are navigation, but the mountain winding intersection is still lost, Uncle Gatekeeper Not only pointed out the way, but also kept telling me to pay attention to safety, not to separate from the small partner, until I contacted him with the small partner before leaving. Every time I went out and entered Hongcun, the ticket inspectors at the entrance were also very enthusiastic, and sometimes asked a few feelings and chats.
