A medieval village of 400 years’ history; about 2 hours’ drive from Beijing City. It used to be a trade post for merchandise like fur, and now a tourist spot with about 60-70 preserved ancient living quarters built on the slopes. Recommended to do short...More

I've studied feng shui for the past twenty years, but last fall was the first time I've seen the beginnings of feng shui, such as this village represents. This was my second trip to China, and I hope not my last.

It was a three hour road trip from Beijing to spend an uninspiring 30 minutes at Cuandixia which was all it took to get a sense of the medieval village now long gone. The streetscapes and building structures are worth a look - takes 30...More

This is an old Ming village that's full of history. Climb on the hill on the opposite side provides an excellent frontal view of the village, and a short walk up the Guandi Temple provides an even better view of the ancient village wall. If...More

This is a beautiful little village. A hike to the top will provide spectacular views, however, it is more of a tourist spot than an authentic village experience. Most huts/homes are selling goods or meals and the people actually live in the city. It is...More

I have to agree that this village, while stunning, should not be the first thing you visit in the region. Only come once you have done the major sites: Mings tombs, Wall, etc. But it is well worth the effort. And winter clearly cuts down...More

Because the village sites in a valley, you will be able to see short hiking trails all around the village perimeter. I highly recommend these trails as they provide great views of the village for pictures.
