Xinye Ancient Village was the high light of my cycling trip in China
Oct 2014 • Solo
I arrived mid afternoon after cycling from Qiandao Hu and took a punt I would be able to find somewhere to sleep. By chance a local young man was also riding back home and we struck up a conversation (I am learning Mandarin), he took me directly to the door of a well equipped private accommodation with en-suite, right in town near Western Hill Memorial Temple. I am sure if you went to the temple and make sleeping signs someone would do the same for you, the locals are so friendly.

I was then able to stroll this beautiful village in the evening and morning when the light just makes the reflections and building magical. I saw the usual farming activities and also the early morning market in full swing before tourists came into town.

There are many old structures and public buildings to visit and friendly locals if you are lucky. This village is very authentic and has not been commercialised. Highly recommended.

Typical and not yet very commercialized Chinese village
Jul 2014 • Couples
We went to Xinye Village last weekend, it is a typical and not yet that commercialzed Chinese village.
Definitely worth a visit.
We went to Lanxi by bus and then took a bus to Zhu Ge Bagua Cun. From Zhu Ge Bagua Cun you can take a bus which brings you to a road where you see a sign to Jiande Village (5 km). We got off there and then hitchhiked the rest of the distance to the village.

The same bus which took us to that street also takes you to Daciyan Temple, which is only a short distance away.

Authentic and untouched

If you are making the journey to Zhuge or Daciyun then this is a worthwhile village to squeeze into your itinerary. (Xinye Ancient Village) Very authentic with a long history. Great place for lunch with a few 'farmhouse' restaurants and the surrounding fields are worthy of a stroll too. During our visit the rice was heavy with seed and the cotton in bud. Zhuge is growing in popularity with the local tourism market since I first visited it a couple of years ago but Xinye is still quiet and largely undiscovered. Apart from the locals we had the place to ourselves.

Zhejiang's hidden gem
Mar 2013 • Family
This 800 year old village, mostly known as Xinye Ancient Village (新叶古村), and not Xinye Mandarin as titled here, is pretty far away from every where, but is one of the most beautiful Chinese villages I've seen recently.
It is surrounded by beautiful mountains and canola fields that blossom during the spring and color everything with deep yellow. The village has its own drainage system that carries rainwater into small pools and river streams across the village. The pools are just amazing, reflecting the ancient buildings.
Almost all the ancients buildings remained intact, and are from the Qing, Ming and sometimes even Yuan dynasties. There are hardly any new, ugly looking buildings there. Moreover, since it's so remote, all the wooden carvings inside the houses remained undamaged, nobody touched them during the Cultural Revolution, which, in China, is a bliss. The most prominent structure is a tall, slightly slanted pagoda.
If don't drive, you can get there by direct buses from Jiande or Lanxi cities. Otherwise take a bus to Daciyan township and continue from there.
The ticket costs 68 yuan and worth every penny.
