The Wang Compound is a huge compound, in 2 sections. It sort of gets repetitive, but we had a guide who navigated us through all the highlights and shared the history with us

We visited Qiao's Family Compound and Wang's Family Compound. Wang's compound is very much larger, less crowded but not as well-maintained at Qiao's. Qiao's have some English write-ups but you can hardly find any in Wang's. Very little information can be found on Wang's family...More
