A great place to experienced a local culture with lots of local food available. Be prepared with an empty stomach as there are many things you wish to savor from this place. However it is quite a far away from the city of Xian so be prepared for a long ride to and fro.

My local friend and her mother invited me to a day trip (today - Sunday) from Xi'an to enjoy the local foods and crafts. I guess we drove for over an hour both ways = around 80kms all told. Many of the earlier reviewers have covered how the community came together to create a vibrant attraction for locals, Xi'an residents... More

This village is not a typical village. The village is transformed to a tourist location selling mostly local delicacies. You can see them selling noodles, lamb stew, apple juice, local pastries and others. There is also a Muslim street which sells similar food but halal. All patrons sits at wooden tables and stools while enjoying hot-piping stew in this cold... More

Visited YuanJiaCun Village with a tour group expecting to visit a Mao era village & see a slice of decades past. We had lunch when we arrived at a 'farmer's restaurant' which was OK. Nice food, but nothing special. The building/s that the 'farmer's restaurant' was housed in was clearly from the Mao era & this whole block was interesting... More

We went Yuanjiacun in a national holiday last year. This place is very near my hometown and about 45 minutes driving time. We spent almost 30 minutes to find the parking space. It’s very crowed and full of people in almost every street. We only walk along the two main streets and even didn’t find a place to have lunch.... More

It is just a mock-up commercialised village selling food at much higher prices than in the city. Only go if you don't have the opportunity to roam around in the city as you can find most of the food here. It gets repetitive after awhile.

We went to YuanJiaCun on a Wednesday afternoon and was told that it would have been packed without parking spots during the weekends. It is clearly a big attraction for local Chinese, who want to get out of Xian city and be closer to nature. Just outside the village, there is horseback riding and fishing. The village itself has two... More
