This is not an ancient village, it can be called a ghost village, because I wandered for a long time without seeing anyone but my lonely footsteps knocking on the stone road. The road here is not easy to follow. In my opinion, its chartered car is a blockade and robbery. Self-driving or renting a car is cheaper than this. It is said that the village has a history of no less than 600 years, and the carvings on the oldest ancestral hall are from the middle of the Ming Dynasty, and the time difference is not very large. But this does not mean and cannot be equal to the time of the entire village. Not to mention that a considerable part of the village has been dilapidated and has not been repaired. There are many popular villages in the surrounding area. Just take a look at this so-called ancient village.
It’s not suitable to bring a baby. The stone road in the village is not easy to walk. It is just like an ancient village. The ticket price of 35 yuan per person feels too high. The ancient village of Xiaobu and Aoshang in Chenzhou all have a similar taste. Tickets are just bigger in this village
The village is very old and somewhat dilapidated.
