Try this one day trip from Beijing and explore the rural area.
Your English speaking guide will pick you up at 8:30am, from your Beijing hotel / address. Then, drive to Cuandixia Village for about 2.5 hours. The village is located on an aqncient post road roughly 90 km northwest from central Beijing in the Jingxi mountain region.
On the way to the village you will enjoy the beautiful mountain and countryside sceneries. Cuandixia contains around 70 courtyard homes, which gently climb the slopes of the mountain, built by a family who migrated from Shanxi province more than 400 years ago. During the Ming and Qing dynasties, the road that led through the mountains to the provinces of Hebei and Shanxi acted as a trade and passageway. The residents of Cuandixia would open their doors to travelers and serve the passing traders. Over time, the village became forgotten as expressways and train tracks changed the route to the West.
This tour includes lunch in a Local restaurant.
Return to your hotel in Beijing is expected around 5pm. If you wish to be dropped off in another location in downtown Beijing, please add that to your notes when booking the tour.
