Oct 2017 • Business
Went for a walk around the village , very rustic , and very friendly . Typical olde Chinese architecture , and a beautiful setting surrounded by forest. Had a fantastic dinner I. A very local restaurant, would recommend the rice stuffed bamboo cooked on an open charcoal fire ! Admittedly I visited in October , in the evening. I can imagine during the summer it would be packed !

Well-preserved and pretty old village
Apr 2015 • Family
We spend a nice morning in the village, walking into the old streets and visiting the buildings. We went there during QingMing holidays, and I was really surprise that it wasn't much crowded. (A bit crowded in the actual village, but not much in the old part. Ticket to visit the old part is around 20-30 rmb/adults (I don't remember...). If you are in the area, the place is worth a visit!

A 何 village
If you are in WUYI, and have a few hours to kill, a visit without any pre conception might actually surprize you, the air there is wonderful in comparison to most places in China, we bought tickets and decided to also pay for a local guide 20rmb, btw the local guides speaks only mandarin. I was really happy that we have engage a guide as otherwise we will never have know the stories of this hidden away 何village,70% of the villagers have the surname 何 still. And in the past, the elders have decree that no one except the medicine man can access the lush forest surrounding the village, no one is allow to even pick the branches that drops, cut a brunch or a tree. If caught picking woods, a finger will be cut off and person expel from the village. Cutting a small tree, you will lose your hand...i think you get the idea. Thus the moment you arrive u can feel the lush and very beautiful forest surrounding this village. Visit soon, as like all good venues in China, it will be destroy when the masses start visiting.

Ruined by over-tourism
Feb 2014 • Couples
Promoted by the guidebooks as a lovely sleepy little village, the reality was a disappointment. Guodong village has now become over-commercialized, and the throngs of domestic tourists that flock through the streets have ruined the charm and serenity promised by the guidebooks.

Worth a visit if passing through on the way to somewhere else, but no need to go out of your way to visit.

Quiet and ageless, with that lived-in look
Sep 2013 • Solo
What used to be an iconic symbol of China has become a well-worn village of no particular consequence. The several Taoist temples are in disuse and now being used for assembling Christmas decorations or storing furniture/equipment, The adjacent stream is plugged with plastic containers. The streets are littered with garbage. The mountains provide a gorgeous setting but the quaint village has 'matured'. So sad.
