    Wuyuan County holds the title for having the most beautiful villages in China. Its mystic scenery, hazy mist, quaint houses, stone paths, and gallery bridges, compose ancient scenes and bring forth memories of legendary times.

    Wuyuan sits on the northeast corner of Jiangxi Province, in southeast China. It isn’t far from China’s pottery capital Jingdezhen, nor is it far from the legendary mountain range Huangshan. Let’s look at some features of Wuyuan’s indisputable beauty.

    Take a deep breath

    Forests cover up to 82 percent of Wuyuan, but in the mountainous areas it goes as high as 96 percent. All of this greenery makes breathing a pleasure, and enriches Wuyuan with abundant oxygen. This contrasts with many other areas of China which contain dangerously high levels of air pollution.

    Flowers everywhere you look

    Wuyuan looks like a dream. It seems an endless sea of flowers—pink peach flowers, yellow rapeseed flowers, and white pear blossoms, all bordered by blue sky and green mountains. In between the flowers you can spot tiny bridges, flowing rivers, pink walls, cyan bricks, dark blue tiles, ancient streets, and quartzite-plate laid alleys. Everything integrates harmoniously, like a living Chinese brush painting.

    Seeing morning mists left a divine imprint on my soul

    When I reached Wuyuan’s Shicheng Village one year while traveling, I met a downpour of torrential rains. The next morning, I got up to see the entire Wuyuan area shrouded in mist. I could see what looked like a watercolor painting of a crescent moon, in the distance of misty clouds and mountains, an otherworldly sight.

    Exquisite old-style architecture

    The architecture in Wuyuan represents the Huizhou school of architecture popular during the Qing and Ming dynasties. This style consists of sculpted brick, stone, and wood. Wuyuan is one of the few places where the authentic historical appearance of many structures are still well preserved. It is astonishing how the ancient flavor of these buildings persists despite floods of tourists and drastic changes to China’s landscape.
