About
Escape the city and head away from the tourist trail and into the lush, fertile valleys of the old city's countryside. Cuandixia was founded during the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644) by members of the Han clan who moved from Shanxi Province.According to legend, a villager named Han Shoude, who bore a strong resemblance to Kangxi Emperor, became a monk in service to the same emperor and built many of the grand courtyards of Cuandixia with imperial funding. Towards the end of the Qing Dynasty Cuandixia prospered from trading in coal, fur, and grain. With your own experienced English speaking guide and private vehicle you will enjoy a relax tour to discover the countryside village of Beijing. Tour includes tasty local lunch, all entrance fee, an English-speaking guide and transport by private vehicle.

    Cuandixia Village
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Your guide will meet you in your centrally located hotel in Beijing. You will start your tour by driving to the Cuandixia Village. It takes about 2.5 hours to arrive the village. It is located on ancient post road roughly 55 miles northwest from central Beijing in the Jingxi mountain region. On the way to the village you will enjoy the beautiful mountain and countryside scenery. Cuandixia Village contains around 70 courtyard homes, which gently climb the slopes of a mountain, built by a family who migrated from Shanxi province more than 400 years ago. During the Ming and Qing dynasties, the road that led through the mountains to the provinces of Hebei and Shanxi acted as a trade and passageway. The residents of Cuandixia would open their doors to travelers and serve the passing trade. Over time, the village became forgotten as expressways and train tracks changed the route to the west Lunch in the Local Family restaurant, you will enjoy an authentic countryside style food. You will end your tour around 5PM and transfer back to your centrally located hotel in Beijing.

Awesome trip!
May 2019 • Family
We had such a great time! It was very relaxing to get out of the city for the day and see how people used to live years ago throughout China. Our guide, Lucy, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She made the entire trip feel so inviting! She was very good at explaining, not only the history of the village, but of the surrounding countryside as well! This is an excellent trip to take if you’re searching for a trip that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the big city! Thank you Lucy for making our trip so great! We really enjoyed our time with you! Thank you for showing us more of the history of China and answering the millions of questions we had!

Awesome One Day Trip To Historical Village With Great Guide!
Apr 2019
My family greatly enjoyed day trip to Cuandixia Village! Linda is the rare tour guide: personable, caring, knowledgeable, patient and flexible. I can't thank Linda enough for taking care of my elderly mother, walking with her hand in hand, to see the village sights, explaining all the interesting facts about the village.

We also enjoyed a delicious lunch, eating local foods from the village region. Linda was flexible to customize our food interests and sights to see. it was a perfect day to tour Cuandixia Village: blue skies, temperate weather, no crowds.

I look forward to coming back to Beijing and booking another tour with Linda!

A perfect Old Chinese village experience... with a mountain backdrop!!
I had chosen this more as an experiment as well as to get away from the cliched and standard Beijing attractions... turned out to be a fantastic decision and an awesome way to start the Beijing experience... 50kms outside Beijing! A very well maintained village of 600 years history, with a lovely climate, CLEAN AIR as well as lovely people. What made the experience really worthwhile was Lucy our guide. She completely changed my so far blindfolded perception of Chinese people... very warm, friendly, knowledgeable, energetic & above all, a wonderful human being. She ensured that we had probably one of the best tour amongst all others in the village. I shall strongly recommend Lucy if you are looking at a truly wonderful and informative tour in and around Beijing!!🙏👍🙌

Wunderful day trip to escape Beijing
May 2018 • Couples
This trip is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to escape Beijing . Walking around this charming village feels like time travel. If you want to know and see how china was 100 years ago spend a day walking around, enjoy local farmer style lunch and just enjoy the scenery. Out Tour guide was Lucy and she was wonderful in explaining everything , showing us around and picking great locations for food. I would give her 5 Stars for the hospitality and 5 Stars for this trips. We really really enjoyed this day.

A good option for a second visit to Beijing
Apr 2018 • Couples
We chose this tour to give us a broader view of Beijing since we had seen the main sights on a previous trip. It was a worthwhile and enjoyable day. Becky was our guide. She was warm, informative, and fun. Her English was quite good and we really enjoyed being able to ask all sorts of questions of our own private guide while we traveled to and from the village. She willingly answered all our questions. The village was charming and primitive compared to urban China, definitely off the beaten path. There is some uphill walking but overall it was not that strenuous. Our meal was was in one of the houses there and it was delicious.
Our thanks to Becky for making this a memorable day.
