Chinese government charges all travelers/tourists 60 yuan to enter this group of villages. It seems that the tourism has led to a lot of new construction which is undermining the character of the place. Also, of course, as like many other tourist places in China...More

First saw this kind of bridge at the entrance of Longji, a smaller version. This bridge is very interesting as the top with pavilions look like temples if the stone structure is not shown.
