Very serene location in the ancient village with the lake views and lotus plants in the water. Narrow alleys past many artisan shops with beautiful carvings and well worth a short visit.

安徽 architecture has been unique in tradition & one will perhaps draw reference to the blockbuster, 臥虎藏龍. More importantly, Chengkan is the last remaining township in today's China that was built according to the Bagua (eight trigrams) some 300 years ago. Since the village itself...More

Found the ancient buildings to be well worth the effort of visiting. Lots to see especially if you are interested in history. Easy walking but comfortable shoes recommended.

We visited this place after visiting Huang Shan. Place is very eye-pleasing, offering both architectural and natural beauty. Due to less tourist flows, you can really see daily life of village folks in here. People were very friendly, but some of them still tried to...More
