Huangyao Acient Town
Recent years, with more and more China films
introduced into all over the world or foreign films
shoot in China, there are an increasing number of foreign
felt the fantastic view in China and want to book a
China Flight and have a exciting China tour.
Huangyao is an ancient water town that has
been relatively unknown until Hollywood filmed The Painted
Veil a few years ago. While watching this film, the
wonderful scene supervised me. It has been such describe
the Huangyao: "Huangyao town as a millennium collection,
have been forgotten in the library quiet on the shelves
when people come inadvertently turned this beautiful
chapter, Simple and elegant style to conquer the hearts
of the people."
Huangyao Ancient Town, with a history of
thousand years, is situated in the northest of zhaoping,
Guangxi, China, by the lower reaches of Li River and
200 km from Guilin. It has long been known as a mini-Guilin
for its typical development of karst topography, covering
an area of 3.6 square km.
The town is most famous for its mountains
with caves, pavilions, temples, ancestor hills, old
trees and tablets. Every corner of the town presents
a typically Chinese scene and presents a marvelous photo
opportunity. Huang Yao was built in 927 B.C. and was
a flourishing and wealthy town then.
Crisscrossed by three small rivers and canals
the beautiful green water creates reflections of Huangyao's
arched roofs, lofty gables and ancient stone bridges
and a poetic atmosphere that feels surreal. Often there
are many art students alongside the streets and beside
the ponds, drawing and painting, capturing some of the
historic scenes there. The exquisite features of Huangyao
are centuries old and the residents live as they always
have making the town an open-air museum. Surrounded
by mountains on all four sides, Huangyao is fairly difficult
to reach and relatively inaccessible with inconvenient
transportation conditions- factors which have helped
to preserve the ancient houses and architecture.
With only eight streets in the town, not
a lot happens here. The elderly town people, who sit
on their doorsteps all day watching people go by, are
content to smile and wave but want no part of getting
photographed, either because of spiritual reasons or
missing teeth. But it is the town¡®s primitively
simple architecture with it grey tiles and stones that
capture the attention of both artists and photographers
who visit Huangyao. The mountains surrounding the town
are all of stone, which have provided rich raw materials
for the construction of its houses, doors, bridges,
temples and slab-covered streets. With its ancient trees
and surrounding environment, Huangyao's architectural
features blend beautifully and compose a landscape in
complete harmony between man and nature.

Veil and felt inspired by the typcal scene, you can
