Used as backdrop in the film Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Hongcun is a delight for me - so we stayed two nights to properly sample the atmosphere of this ancient village night and day. Loved the interesting and scenic back streets, Moon lake, Main Lake,...More

We went to two rural villages near Yellow Mountain, Xidi and Hongcun. We enjoyed Xidi much more - less developed (and limited places to eat) but no crowds, although plenty of art students sketching, which was interesting in itself. Hongcun was an exercise (not a...More
