Western Villages (Yīxiàn)/China

Introducing Western Villages (Yīxiàn)

Easily visited from Túnxī, Yīxiàn is principally famed for the two outstanding historic villages of Xīdì and Hóngcūn, but other settlements are scattered within the region that warrant exploration. Note that foreign visitors to Xīdì, Hóngcūn and other villages in Yīxiàn County require a visitor’s permit (Y50), available from the PSB (Gōngānjú) in Tāngkǒu or Túnxī. Visitors are not officially allowed to overnight in Yīxiàn County.
