OVERVIEW ITINERARY TOUR DETAILS REVIEWS SUGGESTED HOTELS

Welcome to Anhui Province, an area of such natural and unchanged beauty that it is often used as the backdrop for Chinese movies that require spectacular scenery of ancient China.

This trip will lead you to the beautiful regions of Xidi and Hongcun, both recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. In these picturesque towns you will learn about ancient Chinese architecture, as well as the ancient art of penjing and fengshui.

You will have the chance to meet with both a penjing and fengshui master, who will explain their art forms in detail. Your fengshui guide will lead you around Hongcun, a unique village that was constructed using the strict principles of fengshui and is laid out in the shape of a buffalo, complete with two large trees to represent horns and a canal waterway system for intestines.

You’ll also pay visit to the refined region of Chengshitang, an area that was originally constructed by a salt merchant, and the Mukeng Bamboo Forest where the exciting fight scene between Li Mu Bai (Chow Yun-Fat) and Yu Jiao Long (Zhang Ziyi) was set in the Ang Lee movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

The trip also includes a trip to Huangshan (Yellow Mountains), ascending by cable-car and spending the night at the summit. In the morning you will have the unique chance to watch the sunrise over the surrounding land as you savor a delicious breakfast then descend to the foot of the mountain and take a dip in the hot spring to rejuvenate, absorbing the water’s medicinal qualities.

THE BACKYARD DIFFERENCE
  • Visit the summit of Huangshan (also known as Yellow Mountains) and watch the sunrise over Beihai before relaxing at the foot of the mountain in a hot spring
  • Take a guided bike tour around Xidi and Hongcun, both listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites

  • Get a true glimpse of Chinese society with an overnight sleeper train experience
  • Learn about ancient Chinese art of penjing (gardening) from an experienced gardener
