What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Day Trip to Chuandixia

Private Tour: Beijing Ancient Village Tour of Chuandixia

Depart from your Beijing hotel in a luxurious, private vehicle and get acquainted with your private guide during the 55-mile (90-km) journey to Chuandixia Village. Listen as the historical scene of the enclave is set and you discover that the majority of Chuandixia’s architecture dates back the 14th century. 

Admire the lush scenery as you approach the village and stop to capture photographs of dramatic canyons, enormous mountains and dense pine forests. Disembark your vehicle and set out on an explorative stroll of the village; ascend stone stairs and meander through stone-paved lanes to visit beautifully preserved houses from the Ming and Qing dynasties. 

Visit local temples to absorb their sacred atmosphere and see remnants of the revolution from red inscriptions saying “Long Live Mao Zedong”. Chat with local villagers to learn about the cultural traditions of Chuandixia and then feast upon a traditional Chinese lunch prepared before your eyes. 

Bid the villagers goodbye and return to your vehicle for the relaxing journey back to your Beijing hotel, where the tour concludes.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2012

We didn't enjoy the trip as much as we thought as the village wasn't as "untouched" as we had thought. The guide and driver were very accomodating and flexible.
