A village that you must visit. Immerse yourself in the serene relaxing lifestyle of the people. Learn the tea culture and history. I will suggest that you spend a little time to sit and enjoy the organic tea in the village. The taste and atmosphere will be unforgettable. Walk through the village and explore this ancient village that was once the busiest place in tea export. Di not miss going into the ancient houses. As there are still villagers staying in the village, please respect their privacy too. Spending 1-2 hour there will be great.

Xiamei village was the beginning of the Ten-thousand Mile Tea Road. During the Qing Dynasty, tea were traded through this north-south route. It reached the border of Russia and Mongolia to the north and Macao to the south. The village retains its ancient look with a traditional gateway. Inside the village one can visit some mansions which belonged to certain rich tea merchants. Calligraphy and wooden furniture are on displayed. I do find the brick work on buildings interesting.

a small old village on the river. A lot of old buildings and people still living in the same way as thery have for hundreds of years. This is interspersed with modern shops selling bist and pieces. You will be led towards tea tasting and to buy tea. Avoid doing this as the tea is over expensive

it was also listed as one of China’s Famous Villages with Historical and Cultural Significance. The Ancient Tea Road extended from northern Fujian to Moscow finally reaching Europe.Today Xiamei Village is well known for its vernacular Ming and Qing Dwellings featuring exquisite brick, stone and wood carvings. A 900 meters long man made river winds cross the village from west to east, making a landscape of water and village in southern China.

Really a great spot. It seems to be touristy, but you don't feel it at all - still very rural, very natural and authentic. Nobody bothers you, almost no junk to buy - perfect. And the atmosphere is really amazing, especially if you get to know the history of the VERY rich families who traded already hundreds of years ago with the British...

Interesting place to visit for anyone enjoying tea. Tour guide service was included in the 60 RMB admission ticket. However, only Chinese was spoken. A translator is necessary to appreciate the history and importance of this little village. We met a 29th generation descendant of the village founder, living in the same quarter that was built about 250 years. He is in the tea business. Our guide and her husband also have a tea plantation, and process their own tea. She took us to her shop and served us tea. We purchased tea from her knowing the exact source of the our tea.
We took a taxi from our hotel Yeohwa and negotiated the round trip fare for 70 RMB. The driver waited for us while we visited the village.

Well worth a half day, picturesque and very interesting, made more so by our hotelier who guided us around and explained it all in English.
As photographers we loved it, lots of great images and our China loving friends loved the history.
We stayed nearby at the Chun Hui Business Hotel, check out the reviews, it is a great place!

If you like old villages you should not miss this ! It is not very big, one main street/canal with a few side streets. For photographers, this is heaven on earth, you can spent hours and hours taking shots, and wherever your point at the result is always good. Compared to many other old villages we visited, this one is quite original, in the sense that it has not been overly restored like others, where you old looking houses actually are newly build replicas, an unfortunate habit in China.
To get there, you have to organise the trip yourself. There is no (more) bus, so taxi or private car are the only way to get there. Some of the local mini busses do take you there from the roundabout (there is only one) if you manage to get enough people together. Otherwise ask the hotel for local drivers. Many take you up there for around 80 yuan. You can also take one for a whole day and visit other things around wuyishan, costing from 200 up till 600 for a day, depending on your negotiation skills.

Xiamei Village began as an administrative district in 998AD during the Northern Song Dynasty. It developed into a tea marketing hub and the starting point of the Ancient tea route. During our visit we were also served tea on many occasions in the dwelling houses we walked through. The Ancestor Bridge, the Poo-Poo door, exquisite brick and stone carvings on doors, walls and ceilings and the Ancestral temple are some of the best preserved we have seen so far. We walked through the oldest lane in the village with its 200 year old history. The Dangxi River flows through the village and the Ancestor bridge was built over it. We spent about an hour here and enjoyed our visit to this historical village where life still goes on as it did all those centuries ago.
