Li keng village’s beauty make myself stay there for half a afternoon, soft light make the water bridge of the ancient village more show huizhou character, time and the shutter are so lazy to waste in the Likeng . Picks up the camera, taking a motorcycle at the entrance of village, tell him to Wang kou.
The mountains between paddock stood black wall construction, although it is a new repair house, but also all follow up with Hui’s style to build, without any makeshift. It is not far away from Likeng to Wangkou, just dozens of min by car.
Walking, close to this ancient village slowly, alone with the narrow gallery, pass through till the end.
Wangkou, called Yongchuan in ancient time, belongs to Jiangwan town.
Wangkou was built in BC 110. From then on, wang people here plantation and learning simultaneously, Confucianism and business combine together, thriving there.
Thee are 18 valleys gathering direct behind from village, every access with a households
In the past, wuyuan land not open to traffic, all goods was maily transported by boat . Wangkou is at the northeast of ,wuyuan town and even the famous large goods distribution center of She xian, Xiuning etc of Huizhou
just be at Wangkou, obviously feel here are their rape flower piece planting,without so much commercialized and people, walking in the fields casually
Today's wangkou, is silent and relatively desolate.
Her relatively not only for history and travel information of those recorded on her scene, but also for “must be here “ towards to those the most beautiful villages in China.
"A breeze world-now the yellow" , Perhaps this is the creator e of the nature? And because of the generations prefer the appreciation for beauty of rape flower, rape flower get unique value-viewing at wuyuan. Yes, I never think such common farmland crops in China can have this magnificent picture.More had not expected to, rape flower in terraced layout, make this combination with stereo effect, throw away aesthetic fatigue, Seems that rape flower’s scene must be on those mountains. those houses, , those villagers, those costume can set each other off becomes an interest.
then standing among the drizzle quitely, look at busy villagers, look at light yellow of whole Mt, look at the grey wall and white walls infiltrating in raining , I am thing: this season it is time to; This light rain, it is to the point, this mist, making people remember the mountain in ink and wash the takes effect. This beautiful is the kindness of simplicity and peace after enjoying carefully.
Now you see poling bamboo rafting on Yongchuan river, moored boats, can imagine time rewind
The busy wharf, in a drizzle wearing square-cut dress men shuttle back and forth between gallery to the streets in drizzle . Between open windows framed on the lounge upstairs, is the landlady sharp voice urged coolie people work faster, or is the young woman in broken cotton print dressed relies on window, unknown.
Imagining the ancient wangkou, must be of noise and busy. It has such jam-packed posture in TV play , not only the dock
Yongchuan river’s quietly, can't see depth, but is broad anyway. The bank facing green mountain forest, have long tree-lined paths, making visitors shuttling like concealed, very mysterious.
A sound of Chinese zither spreads lonely, drifting across the river, float into your ears , You look at the thick fog in light green, as if they were with the music soft for a while, and heavy for another while
Walking onto the wet green flag, shuttling in the narrow gallery
I removed the broom against the wall, with cameras recording this vicissitudes of life; hear the doubt from woman standing around, nothing worthy for taking picture
The main shops on the street of Wangkou with local characteristics, general speaking, store in the front , housing in middle part, kitchen behind, warehouse on upstairs such layout. It represents the real ancient dwellings preserved best in wuyuan.
Those guideboard need to look at up, and the legend about those zigzag gallery on the wall. Those gallery for fishpond, wine shop, public houses, gambling, casino, demimonde, etc
Just these names making people excited turn around, as time backs to one hundred before, those men shuttling in each gallery, Casio, drinking, demimonde, very busy, Things change, tThings turn star move
After the war of Taiping heavenly kingdom , houses burned more than half, State of Flux, decline of Huizhou merchants , the feudal patriarchal clan system collapse, wangkou village development and decline
the Wangkou people who taking firewood and cutting camphora, whether will regard the sorties come down from ancestors at leisure?
at the time I consider it comes to the end of Wangkou, it gave us a surprise
Look up , an Incredibly is almost missed Wufeng archway
Layered and Layered sculpture making dazzling, shallow carved deep carved that you understand what is too many things to see
Stride into the gate house, I just be Gobsmacked
The Wufeng archway, sits on shout facing north, 5 phoenix carved on eaves sculpture.
It is about 1600 when leave Wangkou, taking the car to Xiaoqi at roadside from Wangkou village Staying at Xiaoqin in the evening.
