Sitting in Zhaitang Town, Mentougou District, Beijing, Cuandixia Village has a history of more than 400 years, and is home to well-reserved courtyard complex built in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The village has 689 rooms of 74 courtyards. Most houses are quadrangle dwellings and three-section compounds built in the late Qing Dynasty (a few of them were built in the Republic of China). These houses sit on mountain slopes of different heights. With the rear part of the village as the center, these houses lie on the two sides of Cuandixia Village following north-south axis and shape like a fan. The upper and lower parts of the village are divided by a 200-meter-long arc wall with some sections as high as 20 meters. The front of the village is surrounded by a 170-meter-long arch-shaped wall, making the village more compact. The three routes run through the village with the function of flood and burglary prevention.
It is also the shooting location of many movies. You might as well come here and stay for a night, and try farm nuts and grilled corns, as well as the unique charm of the ancient village.
