China’s Country Life

About This Trip:

The ancient stone villages of east China’s Anhui province were once home to local merchants, some of the most successful businesspeople of the Ming Dynasty. Located along the banks of the Yangtze River in the areas of Huangshan and Huizhou, these villages facilitated trade between coastal and interior cities, and, later, between China and the outside world. Much of the original Ming and Qing architectural styles from these villages have remained intact. Nearby, the misty peaks of Yellow Mountain (Huangshan) have inspired Chinese artists for generations.

On our journey, we catch the sunset and sunrise on top of Yellow Mountain and explore the terraced fields and bamboo forests of the Chinese countryside, as immortalized in the film, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.” Along the way, we discover the multitude of ancient villages for which the region is renowned—from the photogenic Hongcun, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the less-frequented merchant town of Chengkan. Meet local communities and appreciate the different histories and traditions that give each village its own unique character.
