Photos by Bell Chan


The ancient village of Hongcun is in Anhui province, situated at the foot of Mount Huangshan. Tranquil, serene and calm, the architecture and many carvings in the village are said to be the best examples of the Qing and Ming dynasties in China.

The village became an UNESCO site in 2000, and was the backdrop for popular film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
