We believe that a quick and smart way to learn about a country’s culture and history is not only to read a history book or to make frequent visits to a museum of it, but also to visit its ancient towns and cities. Everyone knows in China there are eight Ancient Cities, which are Xi’an, Luoyang, Beijing, Kaifeng, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Anyang and Zhengzhou. Besides these large cities, from south to north, east to west of China, as gems here and there, there are also a large number of smaller towns/villages which played an important role in the history and owns lots of cultural and historical relics. The water town of Zhouzhuang near Shanghai, Hui style villages near Huangshan, Yangshuo and Daxu near Guilin, Pingyao in central Shanxi, Dali and Lijiang in northwest Yunnan, etc., each of them has different charms while all present China’s rich historical heritage.
Our China Ancient Town Tours are designed for those who have interests in learning about the ancient history of Chinese civilization. During these tours, you may stay in small guesthouses, “intrude” into an old local community, call at a local family, listen to some anecdotes from an aged man with white long beard…. Traveling with our China Ancient Town Tours, you not only sightsee, but experience China’s grass-root units and more…
