an enjoyable afternoon
Oct 2021
This is a little out of the way to get to and parking is terrible. It costs 30 rmb to enter and at the time of writing you need clear covid testing on the app and a facemask.

There are some places to eat and get drinks and snacks. It is interesting to see the way people lived a few hundred years ago. If you are interested in architecture and want to get some great photo opportunities it is worth visiting. There are also some guest houses so it is possible to stay overnight. I enjoyed it. You may also wish to stay into the evening and eat there.

Worth it if you want a sense of the past in this region

Dongguan is not noted for a high quantity of amazing tourist attractions so if you end up in the city and are wondering what to see, this should definitely be a place you consider (unless you're the type who prefers malls). Walking around the old village gives you a feel for what China was like a couple hundred years ago. It's picturesque and not super far from the heart of the city -- maybe a half hour drive from Dongcheng or Nancheng. We didn't eat there but we walked around for at least an hour and enjoyed the sense of going back in time.

Cute and quaint

The Nanshe Ancient Village has some great picturesque views. It’s clean and safe to walk around, and the locals are interested and excited to see tourists walking around. There are many small family temples, and you can go in and see the altars and the relics that are on display, however most of the signs are not in English. There are some street vendors selling traditional Chinese foods and some children’s toys.
They are doing some construction work on the lake/pond right now so there is no water, and there are some funky smells coming out of the dried lakebed (along with some dead fish here and there). When I went, there were some machines moving a lot of dirt around.

One of the limited historical sights to be visited around Dongguan district.
A great place to sample signature dishes especially the ‘General Rice’.

Not too bad
Sep 2017 • Solo
A tourist spot, but not too crowded though. Looks like a very clean and not populated village but there are some people who still live there. You can get there by public transport, the entrance fee is 30rmb. There are some stores inside, but not many food options around. Quite peaceful, worth a visit if you are nearby.

off the beaten track....
Jul 2016 • Solo
Interesting example of an ancient village. There is a lot of work being done at the entrance, so a return trip later in the year will be interesting. A bit hard to find this place, and I had a long walk until I found a motorbike taxi to take me back to Chashan Town. The village itself is rough in places, so it does not have a "touristy" feel. Worth a visit if you are staying in Dongguan for a long time.

Fascinating history
Apr 2016 • Business
One of the better Hakka villages I've been. Big and authentic. Lots of rooms to see and snack places. See tofu being made. Very good museum.

Unsure of price as I came on a company trip.

Ample parking. Friendly people

Nanshe

As said previously, some buildings in the main section of Nanshe are going through remodeling. This does not take away from the beauty of the area. To see sections that *are* old, I recommend walking past all the remodeling toward the back of the area. There are beautiful old buildings falling down and many old buildings that are still being lived in. I would recommend anyone to visit and to really explore beyond what the main crowd sees.
