The village has a lot of history behind it. Some houses are more than 600 years old. However, after you've seen the first one they're all the same. The village itself is kind of boring. Nothing happening, no villagers around. If it was free it...More

It doesn't need, I think. Yangdong is rather small. Let yourself to go where your eyes look. The houses are almost the same. The road from bus stop will lead you to the right side of village. After that turn back and climb... More
