It was a three hour road trip from Beijing to spend an uninspiring 30 minutes at Cuandixia which was all it took to get a sense of the medieval village now long gone. The streetscapes and building structures are worth a look - takes 30...More

I have to agree that this village, while stunning, should not be the first thing you visit in the region. Only come once you have done the major sites: Mings tombs, Wall, etc. But it is well worth the effort. And winter clearly cuts down...More

I have been to China many times and everyone visiting Beijing goes to the Wall. But there is a lot more to see outside Beijing than that: Cuandixia is a fine example. Virtually untouched, it seems that the Japanese didn't make it here during the...More

It is truly an experience to walk through this Ming Dynasty village that has changed little over the last few hundred years, it really is like stepping back in time. The village is surrounded by towering mountains that frame the village perfectly. A walk up...More

Because the village sites in a valley, you will be able to see short hiking trails all around the village perimeter. I highly recommend these trails as they provide great views of the village for pictures.
