I went to the Kinmen Folk Culture Village with a few friends while visiting Kimmen for the day, and overall, this place is part interesting and part a tourist trap. As soon as you get off the bus, the first thing you see are a bunch of stores selling trinkets and food. That definitely made me roll my eyes to... More

There were 18 houses built into 3 rows backing mountain and facing ocean (The best “Feng Shui” 風水according to Chinese tradition) representing classic Southern Fujian architecture in 1900. This was the work by 6 master craftsmen from Tangshan (i.e., China). Wang Guo-Zhen and Wang Jing-Xiang, father and son, were the originals who built theses houses for their families in Kinmen...

A small Fujian style village built by a rich overseas Chinese. Something like 18 ~ 20 houses had been restored and preserved for the public. A peep in the houses would appreciated the way local people live in the past. One thing we like was that the place was still pretty much commercial-free, unlike the other "old villages" in China...

We had an excellent lunch here - oyster noodles and all the Jinmen specialties. It was definitely an enjoyable place to walk around the old houses, do some DIY, and explore.

The Kinmen Folk Culture Village is situated at the eastern region of the island. The village is made up of 18 units of traditional houses. Surprisingly, these houses are occupied by the descendants of their original owners. A few of the houses are open to visitors. Visitors can rest their tired feet at various cafes and eateries along the main... More
