A travel guide to Wuyuan Ancient Village in Jiangxi

Most of the attractions in Wuyuan are ancient villages. What is the difference between them? These ancient villages have a history of cultural stories and are scattered with Hui-style architecture, such as the horsehead walls with white walls and black tiles. There are countless small and large villages. What are the places worth visiting in Wuyuan?

Likeng Village

A small river runs through the village, with Huizhou-style buildings on both sides of the riverbank where the villagers live. Despite several renovations, there are still too many shops along the street, creating an overly commercial atmosphere.

Jiangwan Town

Due to its connection to former General Secretary Jiang Zemin's ancestral homeland, the village is known for its well-preserved Huizhou-style architecture and facilities. The village has a strong belief in Feng Shui, although there have been many renovated buildings, it is still worth a visit.
Two villages, Fen Xiaojiao and Xiaoxiaojiao, have delicate wood and brick carvings. The brick carvings in the buildings are exquisite, and there are many farmhouse restaurants in the village. There are also many shops selling camphor wood.
"The rapeseed flower season, amidst golden terraced fields, and the magnificent Huizhou-style houses with black tiles and white walls, is truly spectacular. Every year in late March, the rapeseed flowers bloom, creating a breathtaking sight that is worth seeing."
The ancient pavilion at the village entrance still retains a quatrain from ancient times: "Hidden in the mountains is a beautiful mist, no boats on the water and no vehicles on land. Amidst the chaos of war in the Central Plains, deep in the Peach Blossom Land is my home." Therefore, it is called a little Peach Blossom Land.
This place is famous for being the filming location of "Ode to Joy 2". The most iconic spots are the large green lawn along the river and the longest wooden bridge in Wuyuan.

Liping Village

This is a village with many Ming and Qing Dynasty official residences. The villagers are known for their love of reading, and are praised by intellectuals as the "origin of Neo-Confucianism". You can see plaques of sketching bases from various universities across the country everywhere, and there are many college students sketching.
Famous for its colored oil paper umbrellas, the village of "Jialu Paper Umbrella" is worth a visit.
